On the day the Neurology was published in the scientific journal, the study carried out a six-month follow-up of 132 people between the ages of 20 and 67, "non-smokers and not supposed", but at the beginning of the investigation they did not do it.
The aerobic exercise team was the best mental outcome to achieve results in evaluations of 0,5 points executive evaluations, from 0.25 points to prolongation and toning.
"The 0.5 part of the standard deviation is more than 20 years of age, young people over 10 years of age at age 40 and older people over the age of 60. Young people at age 60," said the author.
Our research confirms that exercise can be beneficial for older adults, "Stern concluded.
A similar study of the report is recommended for more information on the population and the extension to improve mental abilities.
