A new study in the U-S shows aerobic exercises at a young age helps protect the human brain in middle age.
Cardio activities such as running, swimming and cycling are found to help maintain thinking skills and memory later on in life. Scientists say the research adds to evidence that the human brain benefits from good heart health. Researchers at the University of Minnesota tested almost three thousand healthy people aged around twenty-five. They underwent tests of cardio fitness during the first year of the study. They were tested again twenty years later to run for as long as possible before they became exhausted. People who ran for longer on the treadmill performed better at tests of memory and thinking skills.
