Aerobic Exercise Stabilizes Motor Progression, Helps Cognition

Aerobic exercise stabilizes progression of motor symptoms and improves cognitive function in people with Parkinson’s disease, according to additional data from the Park-in-Shape clinical trial. Notably, these benefits were found to be associated with increased neuronal connectivity in brain areas controlling such functions and with reduced brain atrophy (shrinkage). These results add to previous findings from Park-in-Shape highlighting the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson’s progression, and shed light on underlying brain changes. The study, “Aerobic exercise…
