The Effect of Physical Fatigue on Cognitive Processes Focusing on Sport and Exercise (English)
Abstract [sv]

Huvudsakliga syftet i studien var att undersöka effekten av fysisk utmattning på tre kognitiva processer (uppmärksamhet, exekutiva funktioner samt arbetsminne). Studien utfördes genom ett experiment, där 24 deltagare (ålder 18 till 53), vid två tillfällen utförde kognitiva test (Trail Making A och B, Stroop testet samt Digit Span fram och bakåt), ett tillfälle i utvilat tillstånd och ett i utmattat tillstånd. Resultatet från de två mättillfällena visade inga signifikanta skillnader på något av de kognitiva testerna. Fysisk utmattning hade således ingen effekt på de kognitiva processer som testades. Föreliggande studiens resultat kombinerat med tidigare studiers resultat, påvisar att sambandet mellan fysisk utmattning och kognitiva processer är oklart och ytterligare forskning krävs.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine the effect of physical fatigue on cognitive processes(attention, executive functions and working memory). The study was conducted using an experiment with 24 participants (age 18-53). The participants performed cognitive tests Trail Making A and B, Stroop test and Digit Span forwards and backwards) at two occasions, oncein a rested state and once in a physically fatigued state. The results from the two occasions showed no significant differences. Physical fatigue had no major effects on the cognitivefunctions that were measured. Results from the present study combined with results fromprevious studies, indicates that the relationship between physical fatigue and cognitiveprocesses is unclear and needs further research.
