Physical Activity, Ageing and The Brain, Dr Claire Sexton - Open weeks 2015

In addition to it’s numerous benefits on physical health, physical activity has been shown to improve cognition in healthy older adults, and is also associated with lower risk for dementia. However, precisely how the brain mediates these effects is poorly understood. Dr Claire Sexton examines how physical activity can improve the ageing brain in a study that involves adults aged between 60-80 years having MRI scans before and after a 12-week exercise program.
