Neuroimaging research has shown that acute bouts of moderate intensity aerobic exercise can enhance attention-based neuronal activity in frontal brain regions, namely in the prefrontal cortex (PFC), as well as improve cognitive performance. The circuitry of the PFC is complex with extensive reciprocal corticocortical and thalamocortical connections, yet it remains unclear if aerobic exercise can also assist attentional control over modality-specific sensory cortices. To test this, we used a… Expand
Modulation of inhibitory function in the primary somatosensory cortex and temporal discrimination threshold induced by acute aerobic exercise
TLDR
It is found that acute aerobic exercise modulated S1 inhibitory function depending on exercise intensity, and the exercise-induced change in PPI was associated with the change in temporal discrimination. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that acute exercise has unique effects on sensorimotor integration, which are not accompanied by concurrent changes in somatosensory or motor cortical excitability. Expand
Effects of Moderate Exercise on Cortical Resilience: A Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Study Targeting the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that exercise promotes cortical resilience, specifically in relation to the brain regions that support inhibitory control, after transient perturbation via continuous theta burst stimulation. Expand
Effects of auditory distraction on voluntary movements: exploring the underlying mechanisms associated with parallel processing
TLDR
The results of the present study indicated that the EMG amplitude was not compromised when the auditory stimulus was administered, and the brain mechanisms that underlie the control of potential distractors during exercise were possibly associated with the activity of the frontoparietal network. Expand
Effects of auditory stimuli on electrical activity in the brain during cycle ergometry
TLDR
Results indicated that music reallocated participants' attentional focus toward auditory pathways and reduced perceived exertion, and the reduced focal awareness induced by music led to a more autonomous control of cycle movements performed at light-to-moderate-intensities. Expand
Classification of somatosensory cortex activities using fNIRS
TLDR
fNIRS can be used as an objective measure discriminating different tactile stimulations from the somatosensory cortex of human brain and shows higher peak values in HbO than the ball grasp and cold temperature stimulations. Expand
The interaction between felt touch and tactile consequences of observed actions: an action-based somatosensory congruency paradigm.
TLDR
It is argued that the P3-complex may reflect higher-order self-other distinction by signaling simulated action-based touch that does not match own tactile information, which might help understand higher- order social processes from a somatosensory point of view. Expand
Utilization of fNIRS signals as feedback for sensory decoding
TLDR
The results indicate the potential of fNIRS to be used as an objective measure to discriminate between different tactile stimulations in the somatosensory cortex of brain. Expand
Tactile suppression in goal-directed movement
TLDR
Future research should focus on studying naturalistic movements, or sequences of movements, that share a common meaning or goal, and establishes contextual influences as the defining influences on tactile suppression. Expand
Somatosensory Brain Function and Gray Matter Regional Volumes Differ According to Exercise History: Evidence from Monozygotic Twins
TLDR
Findings indicate that already in 30′s long-term physical activity pattern is linked with specific brain indices, both in functional and structural domains. Expand

Attention-based modulation of tactile stimuli: A comparison between prefrontal lesion patients and healthy age-matched controls
TLDR
The present study highlights the important role of prefrontal regions in sustaining inhibition over early sensory cortical processing stages and in modifying somatosensory transmission based on task-relevance and extends beyond those previously shown to occur as a function of age. Expand
Age-related loss in attention-based modulation of tactile stimuli at early stages of somatosensory processing
TLDR
Overall, present results reveal a deficit in suppressing irrelevant tactile information during an attention-demanding task which possibly relates to reduced markers of performance. Expand
Transient inhibition of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex disrupts attention-based modulation of tactile stimuli at early stages of somatosensory processing
TLDR
The use of cTBS as an effective means of transiently suppressing DLPFC excitability is supported and the reduction in attentional modulation of the P100 following cT BS suggests that the DLP FC contributes to filtering irrelevant somatosensory information at early cortical processing stages. Expand
Acute moderate exercise elicits increased dorsolateral prefrontal activation and improves cognitive performance with Stroop test
A growing number of human studies have reported the beneficial influences of acute as well as chronic exercise on cognitive functions. However, neuroimaging investigations into the neural substratesExpand
Task-Relevant Modulation of Contralateral and Ipsilateral Primary Somatosensory Cortex and the Role of a Prefrontal-Cortical Sensory Gating System
TLDR
It is concluded that SI modulation is dependent on task relevancy and that this modulation may be regulated, at least in part, by the prefrontal cortex. Expand
Early cognitive components of somatosensory event-related potentials.
TLDR
While electrical stimulation at the wrist yielded early ERP amplitudes that were larger overall and latencies that were generally shorter, the selection attention effects did not differ on the basis of site of stimulation. Expand
Spatial attention related SEP amplitude modulations covary with BOLD signal in S1--a simultaneous EEG--fMRI study.
TLDR
The correlation between early and long-latency SEP components and the BOLD effect suggest that spatial-selective attention enhances processing in S1 at 2 time points: During an early passage of the signal and during a later passage, probably via re-entrant feedback from higher cortical areas. Expand
Shift of attention to the body location of distracters is mediated by perceptual load in sustained somatosensory attention
TLDR
The impact of task difficulty on neuronal facilitation of to-be-attended somatosensory vibrotactile stimuli and transient tactile distracters during sustained attention indicated that they pull attention to that body location under conditions of low load. Expand
Crossmodal influences in somatosensory cortex: Interaction of vision and touch
TLDR
Results of the whole‐brain analysis revealed a common fronto‐parietal network that was active across both the bimodal and unimodal task conditions, suggesting that these regions are sensitive to the attentional and motor‐planning aspects of the task rather than the unimodals or bimmodal nature of the stimuli.

Effects of aerobic exercise and gender on visual and auditory P300, reaction time, and accuracy
TLDR
The enhancement of cognitive information processing speed during moderate aerobic exercise, although operating across genders and sensory modalities, is not a global facilitation of cognition, but is accompanied by decreased attention and increased errors. Expand
