I recently started running again, five years after a knee injury slowed me down. It isn't pretty, but it might be good for my brain.
At last year’s MCI Symposium, Nicola Lautenschlager, Professor of Psychiatry of Old Age at the University of Western Australia, presented the results of a clinical trial of exercise to prevent cognitive decline. Those who took part in an exercise program actually improved their scores on tests of memory and thinking.
The results of these studies are being published so fast I can hardly keep up. You can read what I've found out so far in my latest report on the MCI Symposium.
