Just 10 Minutes of Light Physical Activity May Boost Memory
A new study, performed by an international team of researchers from the University of California, Irvine, USA, and the University of Tsukuba, Japan, suggests that only 10 minutes of light physical activity may boost your memory.
To check their hypothesis, the researchers asked 36 healthy adult participants to carry out only 10 minutes of light exercise. After that, the scientists used high-resolution functional MRI to measure changes in brain activity.
Michael Yassa, a project co-leader, says: “What we observed is that these 10-minute periods of exercise showed results immediately afterward.” Yassa and his team are planning to continue investigating. Next, they are going to run longer-term studies in older adults who have the higher risk of cognitive decline.
