The Neurology study, published today, was followed by 132 people from 20 to 67 years of age, non-smokers and dementia for six months, but were not used at the beginning of the study.
Participants four times a week controlled aerobic exercises or stretched and tinted for six months and evaluated their trainers each week.
The group that performed the aerobic exercise presented the best mental results, improving their performance in the performance scores by 0.5 points compared to 0.25 points for those who did and tinted.
"Because the standard deviation difference of 0.5 is 20 years old, people who used the tests were tested as if they were about 10 years younger than 40 years old and about 20 years old. Young people 60 years old," he said. author.
"Our research confirms that exercises can be useful for adults of all ages," Stern concluded.
The report recommended that a similar study be carried out with a much larger population and expansion to provide more detailed information on the improvement of mental skills.
