Cardiorespiratory Fitness and White Matter Neuronal Fiber Integrity in Mild Cognitive Impairment

Author: Tseng, B.
Published: 01/01/2018

BACKGROUND:

Mounting evidence showed the self-reported levels of physical activity are positively associated with white matter (WM) integrity and cognitive performance in normal adults and patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). However, the objective measure of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) was not used in these studies.
OBJECTIVE:

To determine the associations of CRF measured by maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) with WM fiber integrity and neurocognitive performance in older adults with MCI.
