Aerobic Exercise Can Improve Cognition in Patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment
For the study, the researchers examined 35 adults with MCI. The participants were divided in two groups: one group included 16 adults with average age 63, another group was a control group including 19 adults with average age 67.
The first group performed a range of aerobic activities such as treadmill, cycling, and elliptical training. They had training sessions 4 times a week during 6 months. The control group performed stretching exercises with the same schedule.
At the end of the 6-months period, the scientists found that those who performed aerobic exercising had improved more significantly compared to the stretching group.
