Steph Curry scored 51 on the Washington Wizards Wednesday.
With the way Stephen Curry slices through defenses — enough to score 36 points in two quarters — you get the sense that he’s moving at a faster speed than anybody else on the court.
That’s because, in a real way, he’s thinking faster than everybody else.
It happens thanks to the way he and his trainer hack his nervous nervous system for “neurocognitive efficiency.”
In a recent interview with Tech Insider, Curry explained that neurocognitive efficiency is “being able to make smarter, faster decisions on the floor.”
“In a game, there are so many different variables that are thrown at you — the defense, where your teammates are, how fast your body’s moving, and you have to be in control of all those decisions,” he says. “So we overload in our workouts so that the game slows down in real life.”
