"A text brimming with new research in the field and practical suggestions for application and future research. … Discussion of the methodologies and protocols presented should generate considerable interest. … I found the text to be a worthwhile addition to my library." (PsycCRITIQUES, February 2010)
From the Back Cover
Exercise and Cognitive Function focuses on the relationship between physical exercise and cognition, a very timely and important topic with major theoretical and practical implications for a number of areas including ageing, neurorehabilitation, depression and dementia. It brings together a wide range of analytical approaches and experimental results to provide a very useful overview and synthesis of this growing field of study.
The book is divided into three parts.
Part I covers the conceptual, theoretical and methodological underpinnings and issues.
Part II focuses on advances in exercise and cognition research, with appropriate sub-sections on ‘acute’ and ‘chronic’ exercise and cognition.
Part III presents an overview of the area and makes suggestions for the direction of future research.
This is the first book to provide a cutting-edge examination of this increasingly important area written by leading experts from around the world. It will prove invaluable to researchers and practitioners in a number of fields, including exercise science, cognitive science, neuroscience and clinical medicine.
