Young rats with access to a running wheel show improved memory later in life and increased activity of neurons generated in adulthood, finds a new study. The results raise the possibility that exercise early in life may help to protect against age-related cognitive decline.
(University of Tsukuba) University of Tsukaba-led researchers showed that impaired glycometabolism and memory function in type 2 diabetic rats is improved by moderate exercise, possibly via enhanced lactate transport to neurons by M...
Rats that run during their youth are better able to remember new things when they are older - a finding that suggests exercise may help prevent dementia
A new mouse study finds that the adult brain generates new neurons in a previously unknown area: the amygdala, also known as the brain's fear center.
A new study in rodents shows how physical exercise in early life creates a cognitive reserve that improves cognition and neuronal activity in later years.
