About

Executive function is a high-level cognition which plays an important role in our life. Meta-analysis study has demonstrated that acute exercise could improve executive function. However, it is still unclear whether executive function can be enhanced by the concurrent exercise that combines aerobic and resistance exercise. Moreover, previous studies indicated that acute exercise could increase the concentration of blood lactate which is positive correlated to executive function. It is still unclear whether the effect of acute concurrent exercise on executive function is mediated by blood lactate. Therefore, the purposes of present study are: (1) Measuring the effect of acute concurrent exercise and aerobic exercise on executive function. (2) Measuring whether the effect of acute concurrent exercise on executive function is mediated by blood lactate.

Full description

Executive function is a high-level cognition which plays an important role in academic performance, career, and interpersonal relationship. Meta-analysis study has demonstrated that acute exercise could improve executive function, and also observed similar positive effect through both aerobic and resistance exercise. However, it is still unclear whether executive function can be enhanced by the concurrent exercise that combines aerobic and resistance exercise. Moreover, previous studies indicated that acute exercise could increase the concentration of blood lactate which is positive correlated to executive function. It is still unclear whether the effect of acute concurrent exercise on executive function is mediated by blood lactate. Therefore, the purposes of present study are: (1) Measuring the effect of acute concurrent exercise and aerobic exercise on executive function. (2) Measuring whether the effect of acute concurrent exercise on executive function is mediated by blood lactate.
