How does exercise affect our cognitive performance?
New Delhi, Oct 14 (ANI): Humans’ cognitive performance can improve during aerobic exercise. The analysis came in a new study. The study was conducted on 24 participants who performed a visual working memory task at rest and also during the exercise they performed different postures: seated on or pedalling a stationary bicycle, as well as standing or walking on a treadmill. The investigators found that both aerobic exercise and upright posture improved visual working memory compared with passive and seated conditions. Their analyses also suggest where the neural origins of these observed effects take place.
