We are recruiting healthy individuals between the ages of 35 to 59 to participate in a study examining the effects of exercise and video games on brain function.  As a participant, you will be randomly assigned to either exercise at Swerve, a boutique cycling studio, or play video games in our laboratory 3 times per week for 3 months.  As part of the exercise group, you will receive all of your exercise classes for free, a package worth $1,080.  If you are in the video game group, you will receive $360 worth of free exercise classes at the end of the 3-month period. Both before and after the 3-month intervention, you will come to our laboratory to have your fitness level assessed as well as play a variety of cognitive tests while your brain activity is recorded through the non-invasive technique of electroencephalography (EEG).

You will receive an additional $30 for both of these testing sessions, for a total of $60. To find out more information about this exciting opportunity, please contact Dr. Julia Basso at or take our eligibility questionnaire.
