Investigating the impact of exercise and physical activity on cognitive function

This is the official site of Professor Laura Middleton’s Brain and Body Lab!

Our research team focuses on the relationship between exercise, physical activity, and cognitive function throughout the life course.  

In our lab, we use exercise equipment (recumbent stepper and cycle ergometer), electroencephalogram (EEG), computer and television (for delivery of cognitive tests), a portable metabolic oxygen consumption (VO2) system and accelerometers (to capture real-life physical activity).

Additionally, we deliver physical and cognitive training programs for those with cognitive impairments.
