Exercise effects on cognitive functioning in young adults with first-episode psychosis: FitForLife.

Authors: Ekblom Ö, Firth J, Forsell Y, Hallgren M, Schembri A, Skott M

Journal: Psychological Medicine

DOI: 10.1017/S0033291718001022

Year Published: 2018

BACKGROUND: Exercise has mood-enhancing effects and can improve cognitive functioning, but the effects in first-episode psychosis (FEP) remain understudied. We examined the feasibility and cognitive effects of exercise in FEP. METHOD: Multi-center, open-label intervention study. Ninety-one outpatients with FEP (mean age = 30 years, 65% male) received usual care plus a 12-week supervised circuit-training program, […]

Exercise, Sedentary Pastimes, and Cognitive Performance in Healthy Older Adults

Authors: Adrian Schembri, Brian Tal Harel, Christopher Policastro, Hillary R. Bogner, Mary Dupuis Sammel, Selamawit Negash, Steven Edward Arnold, Susanne Inez Steinberg

Journal: American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease & Other Dementias

Volume & Issue: 30 & 3

Page No.: 290-298

DOI: 10.1177/1533317514545615

Year Published: 2015

Background: Moderately vigorous physical activity (MVPA) provides a protective affect against cognitive decline and cardiovascular risk factors. Less is known about sedentary pastimes or non exercise physical activity (NEPA) and cognitive performance. Method: 125 healthy adults 65 or older with no clinical evidence of cognitive impairment were enrolled. The CogState computerized neurocognitive battery was administered. […]

Heart rate variability and cognitive function: Effects of physical effort.

Authors: Darby D, Luft CD, Takase E

Journal: Biological Psychology

Volume & Issue: 82 & 2

Page No.: 164-168

DOI: 10.1016/j.biopsycho.2009.07.007

Year Published: 2009

This study investigated alterations in heart rate variability (HRV) and cognitive performance before and after physical effort, for 30 high-level track and field athletes (23 males and 7 females). Interbeat intervals were assessed at the baseline and during each task of a CogState cognitive battery (simple reaction time, choice reaction time, working memory, short-term memory […]
