Mental performance at work

Is physical activity at work related to mental performance?

We are currently recruiting healthy full-time workers to participate in a study examining whether activity levels and sedentary time at work are related to mental performance.

The research will require you to wear an activity monitor around your arm and a sitting time monitor on your thigh for seven days to record your activity levels both at work and during your leisure time. You will then be required to complete a set of mental performance tests on a computer.

Who can take part?

To take part in the study you must be healthy, aged between 20-60 years and work full-time.

You cannot participate in the study if you:

  • are currently taking medication
  • have a cardiovascular/metabolic disease
  • are currently or have very recently been ill (<2 weeks)
