Lifelong exercise holds key to cognitive well-being 

News Content

A study by researchers at King’s College London highlights a link between lifelong exercise and improved brain function in later life. Regular intensive lifelong exercise as a child and adult was found to improve cognitive functioning at the age of 50 and that even exercise of a lower frequency could offer benefits for cognitive well-being. Published in the journal Psychological Medicine, the study funded by the NIHR’s Guy’s and St Thomas’ Biomedical Research Centre, is one of the first longitudinal investigations to measure the effects of lifelong exercise on the brain.
