The Influence of Participation of Physical Activity in Adolescence and Senescence Adults on Affective Cognition
Physical activity has positive effects on cognitive functions by aging. However, it is rare to find research that have scientifically investigated the effects on the affective-cognitive function. Thus, this study aims to brainscientifically research its effects of physical activity on the affective-cognitive function of adults in adolescence and senescence. As subjects of this study, a total of 60 males adults in D region were selected, and then equally divided into four groups of young exercise group(25~35y/o), young non-exercise group(26~35y/o), old exercise group(60~70y/o), and old non-exercise group(60~70y/o). As experiment tools, the EEG measuring equipment and International Affective Picture System(IAPS) were used. The experiment of this study used an affective-cognitive task where subjects pressed a button depending on emotional valence(positive, neutral, negative) shown in the pictures. During the task, EEG measured eight areas(Fp1, Fp2, Fz, C3, C4, Cz, T3, T4) out of brain areas in accordance with the international 10-20 electrode system, EEG was measured. For statistical analysis, a three-way ANOVA on 4(group)×3(stimulus)×8(area) was conducted. The results showed main effects of group in both reaction time and accuracy, and also in the latency of P3. And there was an interaction between group and stimulus the amplitude of P3. In conclusion, Physical activity has positive effects on the affective-cognitive function of people in adolescence and senescence.
