In the news: A 12-week cycling training regimen improves gait and executive functions concomitantly in people with Parkinson’s disease

by jmiller on April 13, 2017

“AET (aerobic exercise training) using stationary bicycle can independently improve gait and cognitive inhibition in sedentary PD patients.  Given that increases in walking speed were obtained through increases in cadence, with no change in step length, our findings support that gait improvements are specific to the type of motor activity practiced during exercise (i.e. pedaling).  In contrast, the improvements seen in cognitive inhibition were, most likely, not specific to the type of training and they could be due to indirect action mechanisms (i.e. improvement of cardiovascular capacity).  These results are also relevant for the development of targeted AET interventions to improve functional autonomy in PD patients.  (Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, Jan).  Click here to read full text.
