Alzheimer's disease alters the relationship of cardiorespiratory fitness with brain activity during the stroop task

from Journal of the American Physical Therapy Association

Despite mounting evidence that physical activity has positive benefits for brain and cognitive health, there has been little characterization of the relationship between cardiorespiratory fitness and cognition-associated brain activity as measured by functional magnetic resonance imaging. The lack of evidence is particularly glaring for diseases such as Alzheimer disease that degrade cognitive and functional performance. The aim of this study was to describe the relationship between regional brain activity during cognitive tasks and CR fitness level in people with and without AD. more
