Get fit and get smart. There is increasing evidence that vigorous exercise increases secretion of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) Protein. BDNF is a catalyst of processes that increase growth of neurons especially in the hippocampus.
In this study researchers show new cell proliferation, survival, neuron number, and neurotrophin levels were enhanced only when running was accessible to mice. They conclude that exercise is the critical factor mediating increased BDNF levels and adult hippocampal neurogenesis: Tali Kobilo, Qing-Rong Liu, Kriti Gandhi, Mohammed Mughal, Yavin Shaham and Henriette van Praag. Running is the neurogenic and neurotrophic stimulus in environmental enrichment. doi: 10.1101/lm.2283011. Learn. Mem. 2011. 18: 605-609... human recombinant BDNF (0.1 µg) monomer (Neuromics)...
