“…this study is the first to look in detail at the effect of exercise on white matter, the brain’s “wiring,” .lead author Alan J. Gow, PhD, senior research fellow, Center for Cognitive Aging and Cognitive Epidemiology, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom…”

John Hart, Jr, MD, medical science director, Center for BrainHealth, professor, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, University of Texas, Dallas, and a member of the American Academy of Neurology,… is often asked how to prevent cognitive decline. He believes he has a recipe for warding off dementia, something that anyone can do as long as it’s not contraindicated…”As a general rule of thumb, it’s getting to an aerobic state, so raising your pulse 20 beats above your baseline for 20 minutes continuously, at least 3 times a week.”

The study was supported by Research Into Aging, the Age UK-funded Disconnected Mind Project and the United Kingdom’s Medical Research Council. The study authors and Dr. Hart have disclosed no relevant financial relationships.
