Aerobic exercise can help slow cognitive decline in older women
Aerobic exercise can help slow cognitive decline in older women (April 9, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From British Columbia - Aerobic exercise may help slow cognitive decline in older women, according to a report published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Researchers studied nearly 100 women who had reported mild memory impairment. Participants were between 70 and 80 years old, and lived independently. Half were assigned to 2 hour long sessions of aerobic exercise a week for six months, while the other half were assigned resistance training. MRI scans showed that those who underwent aerobic exercise had significantly larger volume in the hippocampus (the area of the brain with memory) than those who did only resistance training.
