According to researchers, aerobic exercise may be more effective than other forms of exercise when it comes to preserving cognition and slowing Alzheimer's decline.
According to a new study, sustained aerobic exercise, such as running, appears to increase hippocampal neurogenesis in the adult brain.
People with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's disease can benefit significantly from a six-month aerobic training program. Aerobic exercise helps improve brain glucose metabolism and executive function, in addition to increasing cardiorespiratory fitness.
A new study reports aerobic exercise can have antidepressant effects for patients with major depressive disorder.
Combining aerobic exercise with the heart-healthy DASH diet improved the ability to think, recall, and make decisions in older people who experienced cognitive decline and mild cognitive impairment.

Regular exercise may help reduce declines in episodic memory for older adults.
For those with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and other risk factors for Alzheimer's disease, participating in aerobic exercise several times a week may slow neurodegeneration. Aerobic exercise reduced hippocampal atrophy in those with MCI.
