Effects of an Acute Bout of Exercise on Cognitive Aspects of Stroop Performance

Recent reviews of the literature have demonstrated that exercise has a positive impact on cognitive performance. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of an acute bout of aerobic

The Acute Effects of a Single Bout of Moderate-intensity Aerobic Exercise on Cognitive Functions in Healthy Adult Males.

A single bout of moderate intensity aerobic exercise for as less as 30 minutes can improve some aspects of cognition, most prominently for memory, reasoning and planning and can shorten the time taken to complete the tests.

Differential Effects of Acute Exercise on Distinct Aspects of Executive Function.

Examination of whether a single bout of aerobic exercise exerts differential effects on distinct aspects of executive function in healthy young adults indicates that working memory performance on the 2-back condition of a facial n-back task was acutely enhanced by moderate-intensity exercise, leading to the prediction that brain mechanisms related to working memory, compared to inhibitory control, are selectively benefited bymoderate- intensity exercise.

A Review of Cognitive Changes During Acute Aerobic Exercise

It is explored how inhibition, working memory and cognitive flexibility are individually impacted by factors such as exercise intensity or duration, as well as factors to consider when assessing exercise-cognition relationships.

The effect of an acute bout of physical activity on specific cognitive processes

by KATHRYN M. BEASMAN (Under the Direction of Phillip D. Tomporowski) ABSTRACT The current study was designed to assess the effects of an acute bout of physical activity on specific cognitive

Effects of acute exercise on executive function: a study with a Tower of London Task.

Results indicated that the exercise group achieved improvements in TOL Task scores reflecting the quality of planning and problem solving, but not in those reflecting rule adherence and performance speed.

Effect of Acute Intermittent Exercise on Cognitive Flexibility: the Role of Exercise Intensity

It is demonstrated that both moderate and high exercise intensity enhance cognitive performance during and following IE, and the greater perceived exertion and lower parasympathetic activity during exercise at 95% PPO could be responsible for the smaller improvement on reaction time, when compared to exercise at 60% P PO.

The effects of an acute bout of moderate intensity exercise on cognitive performance

"The purpose of this study was to provide a real-world test of the relationship between the performance of an acute bout of moderate physical activity (walking) during the lunch hour and subsequent

Selective Effects of Physical Exercise on Choice Reaction Processes

It is reasonably supported that moderate aerobic exercise showed selective rather than general influences on information processing, and underadditive interaction between Time Uncertainty and exercise was found for the highest quartiles of the distribution of reaction times.

The effects of exercise on mood and cognitive functioning.

The immediate effects of strenuous exercise on free-recall memory.

A free-recall memory task was used to assess the after-effects of strenuous exercise on the cognitive functioning of young adults and there were no differences in the serial position effect between the two groups.

Cognitive Performance after Strenuous Physical Exercise

Performance on the most complex task, the Interference subtest of the Stroop, was especially improved after exercise, and the expectancy of the subjects of a potential positive effect of exercise was thought to have been responsible.

Effects of Progressive Exercise on Attentional Focus

To replicate 1986 work of Salmela and Ndoye on whether physical arousal from riding a stationary bicycle led to narrowing of attentional focus 17 subjects responded to a verbal 5-choice RT task while

Effect of work intensity on performance in a psychomotor task during exercise.

The influence of work intensity on performance in a psychomotor task was examined using 10 male subjects and a curve of the inverted-U form was found to fit the performance data significantly (p<0·05).

Analysis showed faster search and increased slopes following exercise, suggesting that exercise improved performance especially under conditions of focused attention.

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

Effect of Exercise on Simple Reaction Times of Recreational Athletes

Simple reaction time during maximal exercise was significantly slower than in the other two conditions which did not differ significantly from one another.

The effect of increasing levels of exercise on mental performance.

Increased levels of concomitant exercise had no significant effect on accuracy of performance and did not produce increased speed of mental performance, except in the last stage of exercise which differed significantly from the first three stages.
