Videos of the opponent team’s games are used to obtain information about the team and its players and to analyze them before important games, such as official football games. Through editing, scouting videos are made that indicate characteristics of offense and defense play of the opponent team. The present study examined the effects of scouting videos on vividness of motor imagery. Participants (n=20) were members of a football club of a sportsoriented college. They were divided into the experimental group that watched the video before developing imagery and the control group that did not. Physiological indicators of the autonomic nervous system when developing motor imagery and psychological indicators for the diagnosis of the contents of the imagery were measured. The results indicated that respiratory rate, heart rate, and sympathetic nervous system responses were significantly activated when developing imagery under the experimental condition. Furthermore, results of tasks and kinesthesia of psychological indicators under the experimental condition were significantly higher than those under control conditions. The above results indicate that scouting videos promoted activation of autonomic nervous system responses and helped participants to develop vivid imagery with a sense of presence under the experimental conditions.
