Both Hebron and Yazulla addressing their expertise in response to ponderings received from those they instruct. In any group of learners, there are various levels assessed by performance under the same instructor in the same environment. The dialog emphasizes that much of a person's success is influenced on their current knowledge base, regardless of the instructor or environment.

This book focuses on learning more about how numerous contingencies including natural ability, fatigue, motivation, effort, experience, expectations of themselves and of the instructor, manner of instruction, practice strategies, consequences of success or failure, what stress and emotions have on brain function, and ultimately on learning and performance. An emphasis is on presenting how the brain responds to these conditions and, for better or worse, how behavior necessarily follows. These ideas are supported in technical vocabulary on research from Cellular, Systems, and Behavioral Neuroscience with an overview of the Brain and Nervous System.

The game of Golf is used as an example for any instructional activity. The goal is to improve learning and performance by reducing stress in coaching, teaching, and performing environments.

Key Words: Education, teaching, coaching, learning, performance, motivation, stress, emotion, behavioral neuroscience, brain.
