One of the invited sessions on Saturday 7 July at ECSS Dublin 2018 focuses on Acute and Chronic Exercise Effects on Attention and Executive Function: Domain-Specific Implication for Sport and Domain-General Relevance across the Lifespan.

Speakers

The first speaker Prof Daniel Memmert (German Sport Univercity Cologne, Germany) talks about the “Visual Attention in Sports”. The second speaker Dr Daniel Sanabria (University of Granada, Spain) focuses on “Physical Exercise, Brain and Attention: Evidence from Cross-Sectional and Acute Exercise Studies.”. The last speaker and the chair of the session AD Caterina Pesce (University of Rome, Italy) talks about “The Contrasting Effects of Physical Activity on Attentional and Cognitive Aging: Do the Quantity and Quality of Physical Activity Matter?

Approach

Here is how AD Pesce approaches the session.
“The symposium addresses an issue that is emerging at the intersection point between exercise and cognition research and sport expertise research: the transient and long-term effects of different amounts and types of physical activity on cognitive functioning.  Interestingly, these research areas are progressively converging toward high-level cognition, as executive function and attention that have both domain-specific relevance for sport training and performance and domain-general relevance across the lifespan from development to aging.

The first presentation offers an overview of ways to measure different dimensions of attention in complex environments and the implications for the development of advanced training programs in team ball sports. The second presentation looks into specific associations between aerobic exercise, brain and cognition, and between sport expertise and the efficiency of different attention systems. The third presentation looks at the effects of physical activity, sport expertise and designed exercise training on domain-general executive function and attention in aging individuals.”
