Dr. Hayato Tsukamoto is a Senior researcher in Research Organization of Science and Technology of Ritsumeikan University, and his research, which collaborated with Professor Tadao Isaka, Professor Takeshi Hashimoto, and Assistant Professor Tadashi Suga in Faculty of Sport and Health Science of Ritsumeikan University, was accepted and published in PLoS One. In this study, we revealed that inhibitory control (i.e., executive function of the brain) could be improved immediately after knee extension resistance exercise, especially with high-intensity. Therefore, we propose that, in addition to whole-body resistance exercise and aerobic exercise, localized resistance exercise that is performed by recruiting limited muscle groups may be sufficient for improving inhibitory control.
