Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) is characterized by complete or partial collapse of a narrowed pharynx and it's associated with reduction in cerebral blood flow, cardiovascular disease, and neuropsychological deficits and reduces survival. In patients with AOS structural, metabolic and hypoperfusion cerebral were associated not only with physiological functions but also with attention and executive function. There is a higher association between apnea hypopnea index and Mini-Mental State Examination in individuals with the exon 4 of APO E gene, indicating that exon 4 of APO E gene confers an increased risk for cognitive decline in individuals with sleep apnea. The analysis of presence and consequences of OSA in cerebral structure, inflammation and neurovascular control can permit a better investigation of abnormalities in these individuals and implement interventions to reduce the risk of development of cognitive and cardiovascular impairment. The non-pharmacological intervention through exercise training can represent an important strategy for improvement in cerebral alterations, cognition and reduction in sleep apnea index. The purpose of present study is investigate the volume and metabolism cerebral, neurovascular control, cognition and exon 4 of APOE gene and their associations before and after exercise training in individuals with moderate to severe OSA.
