Objectives: The objective was to explore the influence of aerobic exercise on the cognitive ability of obese adolescents. Methods: Fifty-six obese adolescents were selected as the research object, with 28 cases in the control group and 28 cases in the observation group. The normal learning were prepared for the obese adolescents in the control group, and aerobics, diet, and comprehensive educational intervention therapy were provided for the obese adolescents in the observation group. Moreover, the neurocognitive function of two groups of obese adolescents was assessed by a multidimensional neuropsychological test. Results: After comprehensive intervention of calisthenics, diet, and education, the body mass index, body weight, systolic blood pressure, and white light reaction in the observation group were significantly better than those in the control group, and the differences were statistically significant (P < 0.05). At the same time, the cognitive ability test, Raven's reasoning test, scores were significantly better than those of the control group. Moreover, intuitive discrimination, similar comparison, and analogy reasoning were statistically significantly higher than those of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusions: The comprehensive intervention of aerobics for obese adolescents can obviously improve their cognitive ability and has practical significance.
