About This Topic

For an upcoming Special Issue in OBM Integrative and Complementary Medicine, we invite investigators to contribute original research and review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to better understand the effects of exercise on cognitive function. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
• The effects of acute or chronic exercise on cognition
• Moderators (e.g., sex, age, weight status) of the exercise-cognition interaction
• Modality-specific (e.g., aerobic vs. resistance exercise) effects of exercise on cognition
• Intensity-specific (e.g., light, moderate, vigorous) effects of exercise on cognition
