Research demonstrates that exercise is favorably associated with numerous cardiometabolic-related outcomes. Emerging research also demonstrates that both acute and chronic exercise may induce neuroprotective and neurorestorative effects on the brain.
For an upcoming Special Issue in the Journal of Clinical Medicine (PubMed indexed), we invite investigators to contribute original research articles (including animal and human studies; experimental studies will be given priority), as well as review articles, that will stimulate the continuing efforts to better understand the relationship between exercise and cognition. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
- The effects of acute exercise on cognition
- The effects of chronic exercise on cognition
- The effects of imposed versus habitual exercise on cognition
- The effects of exercise on different cognitive functions
- Whether exercise intensity and duration moderates the effects of exercise on cognition
- Whether demographic (e.g., age, gender, race-ethnicity, weight status) and cognitive parameters (e.g., mild cognitive impairment) moderates the effects of exercise on cognition
- Whether exercise modality has a differential effect on cognition
- Cellular, molecular, and psychological mechanisms through which exercise may influence cognition
