Genetic Variation Associated with Different Cognitive Functioning [ Time Frame: Two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Genetic variation will be analyzed by extraction of genomic DNA from blood leukocytes, using a salting out procedure, and then by using polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment lengths polymorphism (PCR-RELP) methods for detection of single nucleotide polymorphism. A mutation will be discriminated by digestion with specific restriction endonucleases.

Genetic Polymorphism as Moderator of the Effect of an Acute Bout of Exercise on Cognitive Function
Not Provided

Studies have shown that an acute bout of aerobic exercise positively effects cognition, mainly executive functioning; however the effect is not observed among all people and it is not clear whether only aerobic exercise can produce this effect or possibly also resistant exercise. The main purpose of our study is to examine whether genetic variation is a moderator of this effect and whether resistant exercise is comparable to aerobic exercise in improving cognition following a single bout of exercise.

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Executive Function
  • Other: Cognitive function after exercise test
    The individual subjects will participate in 3 sessions of either aerobic exercise, resistance exercise or rest, in a random order. Before and after each session, the subject will take computerized cognitive tests.
  • Genetic: Blood sample analysis
    In the first evaluation session blood samples will be taken from each subject and will be analysed for genetic polymorphism.
Experimental: Exercise Group
Each individual subject will give a blood sample for genetic analysis and undertake an exercise session and a rest session as a control. Cognitive function will be tested before and after each session.
Interventions:
  • Other: Cognitive function after exercise test
  • Genetic: Blood sample analysis
