Mid-life Exercising Can Boost Your Brain Health, Study
A new research, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, suggests that a new exercise regimen, including aerobic and resistance training, can boost your brain health if you are over 50.
For the study, a team of researchers reviewed 39 studies looking at the impact of such aerobic exercises as walking, running, and swimming, on thinking, alertness, information processing, executing goals and memory skills.
Study lead author Joseph Northey, a doctoral candidate and teaching fellow at the University of Canberra Research Institute for Sport and Exercise in Australia, explains: “When we combined the available data from [39 previous] studies, we were able to show that undertaking physical exercise was able to improve the brain function of people aged 50 and over.”
