First of a kind study reveals the causal relationship between fruit and vegetable consumption, exercise, and happiness, rather than a generalized correlation.
Those who exercise regularly may lower their risk of developing anxiety by 60%, researchers report.
A new small-scale study reveals transcranial direct current stimulation improved gait and increased the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson’s patients.
Irisin, a hormone secreted by muscles during exercise, improved cognitive function and lowered levels of inflammation in mouse models. The findings have implications for the development of treatments for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
A new mathematical model is able to predict the optimal exercise regime to help build muscles.
Regular exercise modulates iron storage and trafficking in the brain and skeletal muscles, and physical activity reduces cortical hepcidin. The findings reveal how exercise can be beneficial for those with Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study reports a strong association between high levels of physical activity and the ability to maintain cognitive function in breast cancer patients who received chemotherapy.
Diet and exercise can influence hippocampal neurogenesis, researchers say. Poor nutrition and lack of exercise have detrimental effects on hippocampal neurogenesis, increasing the risk for dementia.
Exercise has a two-fold effect on those with depression. Physical activity reduces symptoms of depression and increases the brain’s ability to change, researchers report.
Exercise rewires the enhancers in DNA regions associated with the risk of disease development.
Weekly musical dance classes can help to improve daily living and motor functions in those with mild-to-moderate Parkinson’s disease.
Physical exercise was associated with more efficiently organized, robust, and flexible networks in the preteen brain.
A daily five-minute workout dubbed “strength training for your breathing muscles” lowers blood pressure and improves some measures of cardiovascular health more than aerobic exercise or medications designed to reduce blood pressure.
People report mental distress is reduced in the Summer compared to the Fall. Researchers speculate the seasonal improvement in mental wellbeing could be a result of improved diet, more frequent exercise, and improved sleep quality during the Summer mon…
Listening to music while running can help improve people’s performance when they feel mentally fatigued.
Children who are physically active have higher cognitive function and increased functional connectivity in the brain later in life than those who are less active, a new study reports.
Researchers have identified a causal link between strenuous exercise and ALS in people with genetic risk factors for the neurodegenerative disease. The study reports intense physical exercise contributes to motor neuron injury in those susceptible to ALS.
Researchers have identified three biomarkers in blood samples that confirm the link between exercise and improved cognitive function in older adults.
Making small lifestyle changes, such as improving diet, exercising, enjoying social activities, and reducing blood pressure, can reduce the risk of developing dementia in older people with certain risk factors.
Adults over 80 who maintained a healthy lifestyle, including exercise and diet, had a lower risk of cognitive decline, even if they had genetic risk factors for dementia.
