November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, and USC scientists are researching healthy lifestyle choices and certain drugs that might reduce the risk of developing the disease.
Being physically fit may sharpen the memory and lower our risk of dementia, even if we do not start exercising until we are older.
When it comes to exercise and the brain, almost all studies have focused on aerobic exercise.
Imaging shows less brain deterioration in physically active people at high risk for dementia
A half hour of aerobic exercise four to five times a week may prevent or slow cognitive decline in older adults who are at a high risk of developing Alzheimer’s, according to a study published Tuesday in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
We know that 150 minutes of weekly exercise may help prevent Alzheimer’s and that exercise can actually slow down the aging process, but what happens to the brain when we exercise?
You know that exercise is important for keeping your body healthy as you age, but more and more research suggests it plays a role in keeping your mind sharp, too.
How much walking does it take to keep your brain resilient against Alzheimer’s?
New research in mice shows that even a single bout of exercise benefits the brain. While everybody knows that regular physical activity is good for brain health (and overall health), researchers weren’t sure what the effects were of inconsistent exercise.
Over the past 10 years, scientists have identified that a Mediterranean Diet and taking regular exercise improve brain function and are associated with a lower risk of dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease. However, more evidence is needed from human studies conducted in UK adults.
