Exercise: Can this help to improve or preserve cognitive function throughout adulthood?


In their article “Effect of aerobic exercise on cognition in younger adults: a randomized clinical trial,” Dr. Stern and coauthors looked at how exercise affects thinking and memory. There are many reasons why scientists are interested in this area.1 There is a growing body of research and several recently published studies in this area. In fact, in 2012, the Neurology® Patient Page covered the same topic of exercise and cognition.2 The question seems clear: is there a way to preserve or improve thinking and memory in adults? More specifically, if we can find an answer to this question, can we use this information to help people with neurologic illnesses that cause problems with thinking and cognition (like Alzheimer disease [AD])?
