The Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Val66Met Polymorphism Moderates an Effect of Physical Activity on Working Memory Performance
TLDR
It is suggested that physical activity can modulate domain-specific genetic (BDNF) effects on cognition, and greater levels of physical activity offset a deleterious effect of the Met allele on working memory performance. Expand
The Effects of Cell Phone and Text Message Conversations on Simulated Street Crossing
TLDR
It is suggested that texting is as unsafe as phone conversations for street-crossing performance and when subjects completed most of the texting task before initiating crossing, they were more likely to make it safely across the street. Expand
The Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Val 66 Met Polymorphism Moderates an Effect of Physical Activity on Working Memory Performance
Physical activity enhances cognitive performance, yet individual variability in its effectiveness limits its widespread therapeutic application. Genetic differences might be one source of thisExpand
Measuring Physical Activity Using Accelerometry in a Community Sample with Dementia
TLDR
This study demonstrates that it is feasible to use PA monitoring devices in individuals with cognitive impairment and objectively measuring PA and adherence to wearing an activity-monitoring device in a cognitively impaired sample was assessed. Expand
Physical activity and brain plasticity in late adulthood: a conceptual review
A growing body of evidence from neuroscience, epidemiology, and kinesiology suggests that physical activity is effective as both a prevention and treatment for cognitive problems throughout theExpand
Active Experiencing Training Improves Episodic Memory Recall in Older Adults
TLDR
Episodic memory is vulnerable to declines in aging and related neurodegenerative disease, and AE may be an alternative or supplement to traditional cognitive interventions with older adults. Expand
Physical activity and brain plasticity in late adulthood: a conceptual and comprehensive review
A growing body of evidence from neuroscience, epidemiology, and kinesiology suggests that physical activity is effective as both a prevention and treatment for cognitive problems throughout theExpand
Moderate Physical Activity Mediates the Association between White Matter Lesion Volume and Memory Recall in Breast Cancer Survivors
TLDR
Investigating the link between white matter lesion volume, moderate physical activity, and cognition in breast cancer survivors following treatment compared to non-cancer age-matched controls revealed that brain structure significantly predicted cognitive function via mediation of physical activity in breastcancer survivors. Expand
Caloric vestibular stimulation for the management of motor and non-motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that repeated CVS can provide safe and enduring adjuvant relief for motor and non-motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease. Expand
Caloric vestibular stimulation for the management of motor and non-motor symptoms in parkinson's disease: Intention-to-treat data
TLDR
Findings of the main per protocol analysis reported in the allied article entitled, ‘Caloric Vestibular Stimulation for the Management of Motor and Non-Motor Symptoms in Parkinson's Disease’ Wilkinson et al. Expand
