We will test whether the beneficial effect of aerobic exercise on cognitive functioning is modulated by an improvement in sleep quality. We will use three complementary modalities to monitor sleep quality. First, we will apply the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) Questionnaire [88], which assesses the participants’ quality of sleep during the previous month. Second, we will measure inactivity as a proxy for sleep using actigraphy [89]. Finally, we will analyse sleep quality through an in-home-based overnight level two polysomnography (Embletta MPR PG, Natus Medical Inc., Pleasanton, CA) and an ST1 proxy unit.
