Resumo: Exercise promotes the increase of cognitive performance (Aberg et al., 2009), however, the quantity of physical activity needed to achieve this effect is not clearly defined. The present study aimed to research the effects of the quantity of physical activity practice on the executive function of healthy adults, measured by performance on the Stroop test. Results showed that the sedentary group had a worst performance than both groups of physically active individuals. Interestingly, this positive effect of exercise on cognitive performance did not increase with the increase in the quantity of physical activity practiced by the individuals. In conclusion, a moderate quantity of practice (150 min per week) produces the highest amount of benefits for cognitive performance, in comparison with a high quantity of practice (300 min per week).
