The brain and body are synergistic. It guides everything we do and is why we believe in this research.
The Exercise for Brain Health (E4BH) Laboratory is focused on understanding how exercise and physical activity, from single sessions of exercise to long-term exercise training, affect human brain function and mental health.
Project# 1Exercise for Brain Health with Increased Genetic Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease _____
Examine the effects of 6-months aerobic exercise training on:
- ✓ Brain structure, brain function and cognition
- ✓ Conduit artery function & its correlation with cognitive function
- ✓ Circulating angiogenic cells
Project # 2Acute Exercise and Brain Function _____
To assess the effects of moderate intensity exercise on structural/functional changes in the brain measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and neuropsychological assessments.
Project # 3Acute Exercise and Long-Term Memory _____
To determine the time-dependent effects of acute exercise on long-term memory in healthy young adults.
