“This is the first randomized and controlled trial … to assess effects of exercise on brain structure, function and amyloid burden in older adults who have memory problems, thus, high risks of Alzheimer’s disease,” said lead author Rong Zhang, a neurology professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
