A Sedentary Lifestyle and Cognitive Function
Sedentary behavior is hypothesized to be a potential target in its own right—the growing number of people with cognitive impairment emphasizes the importance of better understanding these risk factors. Sedentary behavior is associated with lower global cognitive functioning and slower cognitive decline, particularly in the elderly. Neuropsychological evaluations are classified based on the domain of thought being tested. Global cognition (e.g., the Mini-Mental State Examination), concentration (sustained alertness, including the Mini-Mental State Examination), and other domains can be considered. executive function (a group of cognitive mechanisms responsible for initiating and tracking goal-oriented behaviors), memory (storing and retrieving goal-oriented behaviors), and working memory (short-term manipulation of information encountered). Sedentary behavior can be accompanied by other factors such as depression, a drinking and smoking habit, social distancing and occupation, sleep disruption, disease history, and eventually lead to cognitive impairment. Although preliminary evidence suggests that sedentary activity is associated with cognitive function, the extent of this relationship is unknown.
