Exercise Trains Your Brain, Too

Research into the impact of regular activity on brain function, shows that exercise benefits both short-term and long-term memory

Research into the impact of regular activity on brain function, shows that exercise benefits both short-term and long-term memory. Natural aging processes in the brain allow for decline in brain density. But recent studies show that this decline can be slowed with higher levels of physical fitness. Current information published in Neurobiology of Aging reveals that exercise enhances brain function in the regions associated with memory. Anatomical differences in grey and white matter are found between fit and unfit people. So, keep your brain fine-tuned by scheduling in some time for exercise each day-a walk at lunch, a swim in the evening, or a bike ride with your children or grandchildren.
