TLDR
The findings indicate that high-intensity cardiovascular exercise might be a viable alternative for eliciting acute cognitive gains and discusses the potential of this line of research, identifies a number of challenges and limitations it faces, and proposes applications to individuals, society, and policies.
Intensity-Dependent Effects of Acute Exercise on Executive Function
TLDR
Data show that exercise at moderate vs. high intensity has different effects on executive task performance and related brain activation changes as measured by fMRI and that cardiorespiratory fitness might be a moderating factor of acute exercise effects.
Effect of sustained high-intensity exercise on executive function
Exercise-induced changes in executive function affect the control of action in a dynamic environment. This study aimed to examine the effect of sustained high-intensity exercise on executive
The effects of acute aerobic exercise on executive functions
The aim of the study was to examine the acute effects of exercise on three executive functions: attention, inhibition and working memory, in regularly exercising women (​n​ = 10) and men (​n​ = 10).
The Effect of Aerobic Exercise on Speed and Accuracy Task Components in Motor Learning
TLDR
The degree of improvement on both speed and accuracy task components was not significantly different between the exercise and control group and further studies are warranted to establish the specific relationship between aerobic exercise and task components in motor learning and retention.
Exercise Intensity May Not Moderate the Acute Effects of Functional Circuit Training on Cognitive Function: A Randomized Crossover Trial
TLDR
The effort level does not seem to be a major effect modifier regarding short-term increases in CP following HCT in young active adults, although parameter-free 95% confidence intervals showed pre-post improvements in some outcomes at moderate and high intensity only.
Effects of Aerobic Exercise on Cognitive Performance Among Young Adults in a Higher Education Setting
TLDR
It is suggested that a moderately intense bout of aerobic exercise benefits verbal short-term and long-term memory as well as inhibitory control among students in a classroom setting.

The Influence of Physical Fitness and Exercise upon Cognitive Functioning: A Meta-Analysis
Nearly 200 studies have examined the impact that either acute or long-term exercise has upon cognition. Subsets of these studies have been reviewed using the traditional narrative method, and the
A distributional analysis of the effect of physical exercise on a choice reaction time task
TLDR
The effect of exercise on cognitive performance was due to a major generalized improvement of the whole distribution of response time and, although the benefit effect was small, it was consistent throughout the entire range of reaction times.
The effect of exercise on cognitive performance in soccer-specific tests.
TLDR
Exercise induces not only an improvement in a simple task, like speed of visual search, but also an overall increase in speed of information processing, which is significantly better than at rest.

Acute effects of aerobic exercise on cognitive function in older adults.
TLDR
It is suggested that light and moderate exercises improve cognitive function across the adult lifespan, although the mechanisms underlying the effects of observed acute aerobic exercise on cognitive function may be age dependent.
