Join the live webinar on Neuronline: Exercise in Brain Health and Disease
Additional Organiser: Society for Neuroscience (SfN)
Attendance type(s): Virtual
Event Dates: 28 Apr 2022
Registration Deadline: 28 Apr 2022
Sedentary behaviour is on the rise, resulting in an increased prevalence of preventable life-limiting diseases, including those affecting the brain. This is despite evidence showing that physical activity is one of the most important modifiable lifestyle factors that support good brain health throughout life and improves the quality of life in old age.
The webinar will discuss different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis.
