Brief Summary:
This study is intended to clarify the benefits to brain health and thinking processes that result from different forms of exercise. In particular, this study will investigate the possible benefits of physical exercise (such as pedaling an under-table stationary elliptical) or mental exercise (such as playing a videogame on a portable tablet), or combining these activities together (as in the iPACES™ exergame).
