Exercise increases many parts of the brain, including hippocampus

A new study has found that some parts of the brain are slightly larger and stronger than others in regular exercisers.



Then it has also been observed that this change has been noted more in the areas that need oxygen in the brain. Although experts consider exercise useful for the brain, more details of its effects on the brain have not been considered before.



"Earlier, we used to try to understand the brain completely, but we have examined the effects of exercise on different brain areas, which is a first step," said Fabian Fox, a scientist at the Bone-based Brain Research Institute DZNE.

Experts used the Rhineland study, which used an extensive study conducted by DZNE in Bonn, Germany. In this, brain MRI was taken from 2550 people aged 30 to 94 years. All participants were wearing a scarf noting device on the top of the thigh that was noting movements. Those who had higher physical activity or exercise showed a significant increase in brain cortex and brain volume.



This proved that physical exertion and exercise have profound and positive effects on the brain. On the other hand, ‘hippocampus’, an important brain part of memory, was also seen to increase. Then experts said that the larger the brain, the less likely it will be to decline.


Experts also noted that moderate exercise also has a positive effect on the brain and boosts it. Experts have welcomed this research. In this way, 15 minutes of exercise also has a good effect on the brain. In this way, climbing stairs instead of lift can also reduce mental decline in old age, while young people can benefit greatly from it.



Scientists have further said that exercise can also cause a decrease in diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia.
