A community-based participatory research partnership devel...
The effect of acute exercise on encoding and consolidation of long-term memory 2018 1056 Evidence supports that acute exercise benefits long-term memory. However, it is unclear whether these effects are due to benefits to encoding or consolidation. The purpose of this study was to more effectively isolate encoding and consolidation to ad...
The effect of acute exercise on the formation of long-term memory 2012 6153 Though the body of literature converges on the notion that acute exercise has a small, positive effect on cognitive performance in general (Chang, Labban, Gapin, & Etnier, 2012; Lambourne & Tomporowski, 2010), effects on certain cognitive domains rem...
Effects of an acute bout of exercise on memory in 6th grade children 2014 3360 Research supports the positive effects of exercise on cognitive performance by children. However, a limited number of studies have explored the effects specifically on memory. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of an acute bout of e...
The effects of acute exercise on cognitive performance: A meta-analysis 2012 15372 There is a substantial body of literature related to the effects of a single session of exercise on cognitive performance. The premise underlying this research is that physiological changes in response to exercise have implications for cognitive func...
Effects of acute exercise on long-term memory 2011 7825 In this study, we tested the effect of acute exercise on long-term memory, specifically the timing of exercise relative to the memory challenge. We assessed memory via paragraph recall, in which participants listened to two paragraphs (exposure) and ...
The effects of acute exercise on memory and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) 2016 1317 Acute exercise benefits cognition, and some evidence suggests that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays a role in this effect. The purpose of this study was to explore the dose–response relationship between exercise intensity, memory, and B...
The effects of physical activity on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms: The evidence 2011 6575 Evidence supports the beneficial effects of physical activity (PA) on cognitive performance and suggests that effects might be particularly large for children. However, limited research has explored PA as a means of managing behavioral symptoms and i...

Innovative Research Exploring the Effects of Physical Activity and Genetics on Cognitive Performance in Community-Based Older Adults 2015 1133 Physical activity is predictive of better cognitive performance and lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) is a susceptibility gene for AD with the e4 allele being associated with a greater risk of AD. Cross-sectiona...
Laying the Groundwork for Evidence-Based Public Health: Why Some Local Health Departments Use More Evidence-Based Decision-Making Practices Than Others 2015 873 We examined variation in the use of evidence-based decision-making (EBDM) practices across local health departments (LHDs) in the United States and the extent to which this variation was predicted by resources, personnel, and governance. We analyzed ...
The Physical Activity and Alzheimer's disease (PAAD) study: Cognitive outcomes 2018 324 Background: Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease that degrades cognitive functioning and ultimately results in death.
