Aerobic exercise like brisk walking, swimming, running or cycling Can Delay Age-Related Cognitive changes
Aerobics can prevent or slow the appearance of age-related cognitive changes in young and middle-aged adults.
The study found that aerobics increases cognitive processes important for reasoning, planning and problem solving in adults as young as 20, although the effect was stronger with increasing age.
For the study, researchers assigned 132 adults aged between 20 and 67.Participants were tested for executive function, processing speed, language, attention and episodic memory prior to being assigned to groups and at 12 and 24 weeks.
The findings, published in the journal Neurology, showed that after 24 weeks, there was a significant improvement in executive function in the aerobics group for participants of all ages and the greater the participant’s age, the greater the improvement in executive function.
