Physical activity attenuates age-related biomarker alterations in preclinical AD
Objective: To examine whether engagement in physical activity might favorably alter the agedependent evolution of Alzheimer disease (AD)-related brain and cognitive changes in a cohort of at-risk, late-middle-aged adults. Methods: Three hundred seventeen enrollees in the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention underwent T1 MRI; a subset also underwent ¹¹C-Pittsburgh compound B–PET (n = 186) and […]
Physical activity reduces hippocampal atrophy in elders at genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease
We examined the impact of physical activity (PA) on longitudinal change in hippocampal volume in cognitively intact older adults at varying genetic risk for the sporadic form of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Hippocampal volume was measured from structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans administered at baseline and at an 18-month follow-up in 97 healthy, cognitively intact […]
