About The Study
The purpose of the overall research project is to understand how exercise and sleep interact to improve memory. In this remote study, we study how high intensity exercise performed prior to sleep will compensate for the effects of sleep loss on memory.
Participants will complete online questionnaires to determine eligibility. These forms will ask questions about sleep, mood, exercise, and medical history.
Those eligible will have a remote practice session via Zoom prior to the experimental procedure. The experimental procedure is performed on-line in your home. It will involve a slightly shorter or an average night of sleep after a brief (~15 min) high-intensity (HIIT) exercise intervention, or no exercise, and an immediate memory task (The exercise session will be recorded through Zoom). In the morning, participants will take a second, 20-minute memory task. Participants will be compensated a total of $50.00 after completion.
