possible explanation for the lack of change in BDNF in the present study and others ( Goekint et al., 2010 ; Rojas-Vega et al., 2012 ), this hypothesis is still largely speculative and needs further confirmation. Another issue that deserves discussion is the intensity of the performed exercises. For example, Ferris et al. (2007) showed the role of intensity in eliciting an acute change in the BDNF level as a result of physical exercise. Rojas-Vega et al. (2006) evaluated the effect of short-term aerobic exercise and a ramp-incremental cycle ergometer test to

neuropsychological assessment of visual-spatial function, the Tactual Performance Test, the Benton Visual Retention Test (BVRT), the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test (ROCF), and the Ruff Figural Fluency Test (RFFT) are used ( Kang et al., 2014 ; McIntyre et al., 2013 ; Steck, 2005 ). Clinical studies of tactile-spatial perception have so far focused on blind individuals ( Postma et al., 2007 ), newborns and children with no linguistic features ( Gallace and Spence, 2009 ), alcohol addicts ( Charter, 2000 ) and healthy people considering sex as the differentiating variable

Introduction Neuromuscular function tests, such as a squat, counter movement and drop jumps, maximal isometric voluntary contraction (MVIC) and isokinetic maximal concentric contractions ( Abernethy et al., 1995 ; Cometti et al., 2011 ; Wilson and Murphy, 1996 ), are important tools for monitoring fatigue in athletes ( Raeder et al., 2016 ; Maszczyk et al., 2016 ; Sams et al., 2018 ); however, there is no standardized test to measure muscle fatigue in different sports ( Baar and Mcgee, 2008 ). Several studies have shown a decrease in maximal voluntary

soccer, which may help to optimize training drills, testing procedures and nutritional recommendations for the players. The purpose of this study was to determine the within-subject variability of GPS-derived P met data in elite soccer players across several pre-season matches and compare the variability of high P met , velocity, acceleration and deceleration running. Additionally, differences in P met data among playing positions and relationships with various physical abilities were also investigated. Methods Participants Twelve soccer players competing
