Summary of "Breaking up prolonged sitting with moderate-intensity walking improves attention and executive function in Qatari females."

Cultural, environmental and logistical factors promote a sedentary lifestyle within Qatar, particularly for females. Sedentary behaviour is acutely associated with poor cognitive function and fatigue, and chronically may be implicated with cognitive decline (i.e. Alzheimer's disease).
