For the study, a team of researchers followed 132 participants whose age was between 20 and 67 years. All participants were assigned to 6 months of either aerobic exercise or stretching and toning 4 times per week.
Study author Professor Yaakov Stern, of the Taub Institute for the Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain at Columbia University in New York, comments: “Since thinking skills at the start of the study were poorer for participants who were older, our findings suggest that aerobic exercise is more likely to improve age-related declines in thinking skills rather than improve performance in those without a decline.”
