Participants are needed for a study to determine how increases in aerobic exercise affect brain function.

RIDE Indoor Cycling is partnering with Wendy Suzuki, a neuroscientist at New York University, on the study, which will explore the effects of three months of increased aerobic exercise on a range of brain functions including memory, mood, attention and stress responses.

About 70 people have signed up so far, but more are needed.

Adults ages 25-59 who are moderately fit and work out no more than three times a week are eligible. Participants will be randomly assigned to either maintain or increase their exercise regimen at RIDE for three months. They’ll complete a cardiopulmonary fitness test and a series of mood and cognitive tasks at the beginning, middle and end of the study period.

During the study, participants will get free RIDE classes and $60 worth of RIDE store credit for completing the three fitness and cognitive testing sessions.

For information or to sign up, contact the Suzuki Laboratory at RIDE.exercisestudy@gmail.com or call (212) 998-3969.

Two RIDE Indoor Cycling studios operate in Austin. They’re located at 117 Lavaca Street and at the Hill Country Galleria, 12800 Hill Country Boulevard, Suite 110, in Bee Cave.
