Even a 10-Minute Walk May Be Good for the Brain

The findings suggest that exercise does not need to be prolonged or intense to benefit the brain and that the effects can begin far more quickly than many of us might expect. We already know that exercise can change our brains and minds. The evidence is extensive and growing. Multiple studies with mice and rats have found that when the animals run on wheels or treadmills, they develop more new brain cells than if they remain sedentary. Many of the new cells are clustered in the hippocampus, a portion of the brain that is essential for memory creation and storage. The active animals also perform better on tests of learning and memory. Equivalent experiments examining brain tissue are not possible in people.

It started in his left hand, Geoffrey Rogers said, but before long the trembling affected his right too. The cause, doctors found, was Parkinson’s disease. At Rush University Medical Center, where Rogers, then 64, received a second opinion, the father of three learned he could join a new clinical trial for those with the neurodegenerative condition. A team of researchers at Northwestern Medicine and the University of Colorado School of Medicine wanted to find out whether high- or moderate-intensity exercise was safe for patients with Parkinson’s disease. Would it help with the disease’s symptoms, the progressive loss of muscle control, tremors, stiffness?

Five years later, those scientists have an answer: Yes. “The real question is: Is there any disease or any disorder for which exercise is not good?” About 1 million Americans live with Parkinson’s disease, according to the Parkinson’s Foundation, which funded the study.
