Exercise Improves Cognitive Function in Aging Adults.
Adults ages 57-75 who exercised for one hour on a stationary bike three times a week for twelve weeks not only improved their physical health, but also their cognitive function. According to Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, the lead author of the study, “Physical exercise may be one of the most beneficial and cost-effective therapies widely available to everyone to elevate memory performance. These findings should motivate adults of all ages to start exercising aerobically.”
