The next step: the influence of acute exercise on cognitive function during locomotive goal-directed behaviour

Duncan, Shelley (2016) The next step: the influence of acute exercise on cognitive function during locomotive goal-directed behaviour. PhD thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

In the performance of goal-directed behaviour, multiple attributes of cognitive function have been investigated. A core confounding factor, however, is that aspects of cognitive function have predominantly been evaluated employing seated or supine paradigms that are not representative of activities of daily living. Therefore the purpose of this PhD thesis was to evaluate differences in and the influence of acute bouts of exercise on cognitive function and gaze behaviour incorporating whole body movement and behaviour.
