Regular exercise can improve memory and learning: Scientists

Exercising for up to an hour a day can improve memory and learning in children and the elderly, scientists have found.

Walking or cycling regularly for between six months to a year can improve memory and problem solving skills in the elderly by between 15 and 20 per cent, according to researchers.

Professor Art Kramer, director of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois, who led the research, said their findings could have major implications for improving children’s performance at school, and it could also be used to help the elderly combat memory loss in old age.

Can Exercise Aid Memory in Parkinson’s?

“Studies of normal aging show that memory and executive function can be improved with exercise, such as walking several days a week,” explains Karen Anderson, M.D., principal investigator and an assistant professor of neurology and psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

She adds, “We want to see if exercise can slow or reverse some of these memory changes in Parkinson’s patients. We will also investigate whether a computer game designed to improve executive function may make a difference as well.

Exercise helps people eat healthier: physical activity in itself can help someone make better eating choices, according to a study from a Harvard University expert. A review of past research by neurology professor Miguel Alonso Alonso shows that physical activity can help in diet control in a few different ways.

Exercise creates more connections in the prefrontal part of the brain. This improves cognitive functions, including the ability to suppress impulsive eating urges.
