I think many of us have had the experience of being able to do something flawlessly when no one is watching, but then be utterly unable to do it as soon as there is an audience.
It’s not surprising that the brain scans show differing brain activity with the stress.

Any special warfare instructor worth his salt can do the same prediction. It’s his job to separate those who will cave from those who are cool and calm under extreme stress.
