Cognitive Regulation Training and Exercise (CORTEX) Trial
This study was funded by the National Heart, Lung, & Blood Institute.
The primary aim of this study was to test the effects of a novel, multi-modal cognitive training program on subsequent exercise self-regulation. The study involved two phases. Phase 1 involved 20 hours of training (participants were randomly assigned to games or videos) for 4 weeks, preceded and followed by testing. Phase 2 involved a free weekly exercise program at a local fitness facility. The program lasted 4 months and all participants received a membership to the facility for the duration of the study. The program concluded with 5-month follow-up testing.
The trial has ended. Stay tuned for published results.
