Who says you can’t do two things at once and do them both well?

A new University of Florida study challenges the notion that multi-tasking causes one or both activities to suffer. In a study of older adults who completed cognitive tasks while cycling on a stationary bike, UF researchers found that participants’ cycling speed improved while multi-tasking with no cost to their cognitive performance.

Results of the study, which was supported by a grant from the National Institute on Aging, were published May 13 in the journal PLOS ONE.
