There are few things as strongly consensus as the fact that exercise is good for the brain.
A new study shows even just 10 minutes of mild exercise strengthens connections and communication between memory-focused parts of the brain in healthy young adults.
After 10 minutes of light exercise (30% VO2max) high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging showed better connectivity between the hippocampal dentate gyrus and cortical areas linked to detailed memory processing. The magnitude of the enhanced functional connectivity also predicted the extent of memory improvement suggesting that even light exercise is good for the brain.
