Exercise increases size of the HIPPOCAMPUS!


👉Let me know in the comments down below HOW OFTEN DO YOU EXERCISE?

.

🏋️‍♂️⛹🏻‍♀️🚵‍♀️

.

Physical activity has acquired significant attention in recent years as a potentially effective method for elevating cognitive function and improving brain health throughout the life span.

.

In fact, the brain regions supporting executive functions (i.e., prefrontal cortex) are the same regions associated with higher fitness levels.

.

❗️Studies have shown that higher cardiorespiratory fitness levels were associated with larger hippocampal volumes, which, in turn, is associated with better memory performance on a spatial memory task independent of age and education levels.

.

Indeed, continuous aerobic exercise during several months appears to benefit many different cognitive domains, specifically the executive functions.

.

Therefore, studies suggested that physical activity might be a potent method to increase grey matter volume in late adulthood, and therefore, may be effective prevention for cognitive impairment and other behavioural problems associated with brain atrophy.

.

I’m wishing you an active day!🤸‍♀️

.

Take care.
