The New York Times (3/31, Reynolds) reports, “Older people with mild cognitive impairment showed improvements in brain blood flow and memory after a yearlong aerobic exercise program,” investigators concluded in a study revealing that “brisk walking improves brain health and thinking in aging people with memory impairments.” In the year-long study involving 70 “middle-aged and older people with early signs of memory loss,” participants “raised their cognitive scores after they started walking frequently.” In addition, “regular exercise…amplified the healthy flow of blood to their brains.” The findings were published online in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
