Effects of #Caffeine and Acute Aerobic #Exercise on Working Memory and Caffeine Withdrawal

Studies show that a single bout of exercise confers cognitive benefits. However, many individuals use psychoactive substances such as caffeine to enhance cognitive performance.. The objectives of this study were to compare the effects of acute moderate intensity aerobic exercise to caffeine on working memory (WM) and caffeine withdrawal symptoms (CWS). In Phase I, non-caffeine (n = 29) and caffeine consumers (n = 30) completed a WM assessment, followed … Continue reading Effects of #Caffeine and Acute Aerobic #Exercise on Working Memory and Caffeine Withdrawal

Lipid metabolism links nutrient-exercise timing to insulin sensitivity in men classified as overweight or #obese

Pre-exercise nutrient availability alters acute metabolic responses to exercise, which could modulate training responsiveness ..exercise before versus after breakfast consumption increased net intramuscular lipid utilization in type I (net change: -3.44±2.63% versus 1.44±4.18% area lipid staining, p < 0.01) and type II fibres (-1.89±2.48% versus 1.83±1.92% area lipid staining, p < 0.05). Training Study – postprandial glycemia was not differentially affected by 6-weeks of exercise … Continue reading Lipid metabolism links nutrient-exercise timing to insulin sensitivity in men classified as overweight or #obese

Nonpharmacological Interventions to Manage #Dementia Symptoms in Community-Dwelling Older Adults: A Cluster Randomized Controlled Trial

..exploring the effects of chair yoga (CY), compared to music intervention (MI) and chair-based exercise (CBE) in this population. Using a cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT), 3 community sites were randomly assigned 1:1:1 to CY, MI, or CBE. Participants attended twice-weekly 45-minute sessions for 12 weeks.. The CY group improved significantly in quality of life compared to the MI group .. However, no significant group … Continue reading Nonpharmacological Interventions to Manage #Dementia Symptoms in Community-Dwelling Older Adults: A Cluster Randomized Controlled Trial
