Exercise improves memory
Researchers assigned women ages 70 to 80 with mild cognitive impairment to 6 months of either toning and stretching, weight lifting or walking briskly. Their verbal and spatial memory was tested before and after the study. At the end of the study, women in the toning group scored worse on the tests than they had at the beginning. But those in the other two groups performed better on cognitive tests than before the study. While both the walking and resistance training groups improved equally in spatial memory, the women in the walking group showed even greater gains in verbal memory than the weight lifting group.
