Aerobics is perhaps the most popular form of exercise with myriad benefits.But research says that there are some unexpected additional benefits for aerobics.It is heard that if you want to improve brain volume and need better cognitive functioning, participate in aerobic exercise such as brisk walking, running, jogging or swimming. A fresh research has concluded that individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) who participated in aerobic exercise were found to have better cognitive functioning and greater increase in brain volume.The study was presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, US, recently.Any type of exercise can be beneficial. But, aerobic activity may create potential benefits for higher cognitive functioning," said Jeongchul Kim from Wake Forest University in North Carolina, US. Individuals with MCI are at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD), which is the most common form of dementia. MCI affects memory and thinking skills. "Even over a short period of time, we saw aerobic exercise lead to a remarkable change in the brain," added Laura D Baker from Wake Forest University.
