Abstract

Purpose: to determine the effects of an acute bout of moderate-intensity exercise on cognitive function in adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Methods: Adult subjects with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and currently taking medication as treatment completed the ADHD Self-Report Scale Symptom Checklist (ASRS-v1.1) to assess symptoms. The exercise training consisted of a 3 minute warm up, 7 bouts of 2 minutes at 55-65% of heart rate reserve and 1 minute at 35-45% of the subject’s heart rate reserve, and a 3 minute cool-down on the treadmill at a 0% grade. Heart rate, rating of perceived exertion, and treadmill speed were recorded every minute throughout the treadmill test. Prior to and following the exercise training, subjects completed a cognitive test consisting of the Cognitive Screening or Step 3 of the Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT5), the Stroop Test, and a self-efficacy scale.
