Emerging research augments evidence linking exercise to brain health, with some researchers suggesting fitness may even improve memory.
A new study lends proof that exercise improves blood flow to two key regions of the brain associated with memory. Investigators from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center mapped brain changes after one year of aerobic workouts and found increased blow flow into critical areas of the brain associated with memory.
Notably, the study showed this blood flow can help even older people with memory issues improve cognition, a finding that scientists say could guide future Alzheimer’s disease research. “Perhaps we can one day develop a drug or procedure that safely targets blood flow into these brainRead more on psychcentral.com
