During the study, a bunch of volunteers agreed to undergo functional MRI scanning which measured their brain activity. Also, they completed tests that intended to assess their working memory.

The analysis of the received data showed that those participants who had the most improvements in brain network connectivity and the largest cognitive benefits after single workouts also had similarly important positive effects at the end of the training program.

Wendy Suzuki, of New York University in New York City, says: “There is a strong and direct link between physical activity and how your brain works. People still do not link physical health to the brain and cognitive health; they think about fitting into a bikini or losing that last pound, not about all the brain systems they are improving and enhancing every time they work out.”
