Running can jog your memory

19th January 2010

Researchers at Cambridge University have found that running causes the brain to produce new cells and helps with memory recall.

In experiments with mice, the scientists found that recall was nearly twice as good in mice that ran regularly compared with a sedentary control group. "We know exercise can be good for healthy brain function, but this work provides us with a mechanism for the effect," said Timothy Bussey, a behavioural neuroscientist at Cambridge and a senior author on the study.
