Purpose & Background: The relationship between cardiovascular fitness with cognitive processes is greatly attractive, and the present study was designed to investigate the relationship between cardiovascular fitness with the response inhibition ability in students.
Methodology: Among physical education male students at university of Kurdistan, 38 students were randomly selected as statistical sample (age: 22/23±1/60 year, weight: 70/82±6/88 kg). To estimate cardiovascular fitness, maximal oxygen uptake of subjects was measured by using Bruce test and to assess the response inhibition ability, the computerized Stroop test was used. Statistical analysis of the data was performed using descriptive statistics and Pearson correlation coefficient (p Results: The results showed that, there was not significant correlation between maximal oxygen uptake with interference number, error number in the congruent and incongruent condition and reaction time in the congruent and incongruent condition.
Conclusion: These findings indicate that, there is not a significant relationship between cardiovascular fitness and response inhibition ability in students.
