EXERCISE IN HEALTHY YOUNG ADULTS

Suzuki’s first exercise study focused on the effect of exercise in university students taking her class “Can Exercise Change Your Brain?” We found that a semester of increased aerobic exercise improved performance on a recognition memory task compared to a control class that did not participate in the same exercise regime during the semester.

 

STUDIES IN PATIENT POPULATION GROUPS

We have recently published a study showing that just eight weeks of increased aerobic exercise with affirmation (intenSati) can improve mood, decrease depression scores and increase quality of life ratings in a group of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI; Lee et al., in press).
