Physical Activity and Individual Cognitive Function Parameters: Unique Exercise-Induced Mechanisms

Emily Frith, Paul D. Loprinzi.

Abstract
Cognitive-based parameters, including memory, reasoning, concentration and planning are key cognitions essential for optimal daily function. Emerging research demonstrates that physical activity is individually associated with each of these cognitions. Our mechanistic understanding of these relationships, however, is less understood. We comprehensively discuss the unique exercise-induced mechanisms for various individual cognitive functions. This narrative review highlights the emerging research evaluating the effects of physical activity on memory, reasoning, concentration and planning. Herein, we discuss the unique and shared mechanistic pathways to shed light on these interrelationships. Exercise uniquely influences individual cognitive functions.

Key words: Cognition; executive function; exercise; physical activity
