article description
Motor cognitive response time (MCRT) is the time elapsed between presenting a stimulus and the time taken by that individual to respond to that stimulus through a motor performance. After completing aerobic exercise, there are various changes that takes place, one of which might be change in cognitive function. Whether cardiopulmonary aerobic activity/capacity has an impact on MCRT is not explored yet.
