EX­CER­CISE FOR MEM­ORY’S SAKE

IVF India - - Unplugged -

A burst of mod­er­ate ex­er­cise will en­hance the con­sol­i­da­tion of mem­o­ries in adults ac­cord­ing to new re­search. In a re­cent study, re­searchers had peo­ple ex­er­cise on a sta­tion­ary bi­cy­cle for six min­utes. One hour later the par­tic­i­pants were given a sur­prise re­call test on pre­vi­ously viewed im­ages. The re­sults in the ex­er­cise group as com­pared to non-ex­er­cise found a strik­ing en­hance­ment of mem­ory in both healthy and cog­ni­tively im­paired adults.
