The purpose of the present study was to explore the effect of interaction between gender and cycling exercise on the psychomotor performance. Fourteen young subjects (7 women and 7 men) underwent 6 min cycling at constant speed of 30 m min-1 and then their psychomotor performance was assessed after exercise. Results show that 6 min cycling exercise is significantly (p< 0.05) improved the critical flicker fusion threshold tasks in women but not in men. The effect of exercise on sensorimotor performance does not reach to the level of significance (p>0.05). We conclude that six minute cycling exercise at a constant speed and work interacts with gender in improving the cognitive function.
