Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Several types of research studies have concluded that physical exercise can improve cognitive function in healthy elderly persons, and potentially reduce the risk of developing cognitive impairment. Some evidence also suggests that exercise may be even more important for individuals at high risk for Alzheimer's disease, such as those who carry the gene variant known as ApoE epsilon4. The ApoE epsilon4 gene is the most prevalent genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease
