10 dental students carried out 2x2 d-tests quantifying actual concentration capability. The tests were interrupted (after 2 tests) by a standardized dynamic physical exercise for 5 minutes or - at another day, same volunteers - by 5 minutes rest in a sitting position listening to calming music. Test results (correct marks of 1316) before and after break were compared. In the test setting with exercise the correct number (Mean +/- standard deviation) changed from 692.7 (+/- 80.8) before to 787.2 (+/- 93.5) after the break, in the setting with rest during the break the number changed from 727.1 (+/- 160.8) to 783 (+/- 163.4) signs marked correctly.
