This chapter summarizes studies on the effects of acute exercise on event-related potentials (ERPs). Specifically, the review emphasizes two exercise paradigms in which ERPs were assessed immediately after exercise or after a delay following exercise cessation. Acute exercise had positive influences on stimulus-locked and endogenous ERP components and limited effects on early stimulus-locked or response-locked ERP components, regardless of the time points assessed after exercise termination. Notably, the relationship between acute exercise and ERPs was moderated by the ERP measures, the type of cognition, the characteristics of the participants, and the exercise protocol employed. Studies examining acute exercise and assessing behavioral cognition provide promising directions for future studies examining the association between acute exercise and ERPs.
