With the advent of aging, aging not only brings a great threat to the physical and mental health of individuals, but also brings a huge burden to the whole society. Therefore, how to maintain the healthy physical and mental state of the elderly and delay cognitive aging has become the focus of the majority of scholars. This paper discusses the different effects of different physical exercise modes on the cognitive function of the elderly. The processing resources theory of cognitive aging and the role of executive decay theory in cognitive aging are discussed only from the point of view of psychological mechanism. This provides a reference for delaying the decline of cognitive function in the elderly and promoting it to slow down the aging.
