Physical fitness and memory – participants sought

Researchers at UNCG are interested in understanding the relationship between physical fitness and memory. If you qualify to participate, you will be invited to attend a single session on the UNCG campus which takes approximately 90 minutes.

Inclusion criteria: Age of 18-25 years old or 50-65 years old, and no medical issues that preclude participation in a submaximal fitness test. Exclusion criteria (determined through questionnaires): Clinical cognitive impairment or uncorrected visual or hearing impairment. Procedures: Fill out questionnaires to ensure your eligibility to be in the study (about 15 minutes); perform three computerized cognitive tasks (about 60 minutes); complete a submaximal test to measure your physical fitness (about 15 minutes). A parking pass will be provided to each participant who is coming from off-campus and requires parking. For more information, contact Chia-Hao Shih at c_shih2@uncg.edu or 334-3275.
