Effects of Exercise on Cerebral Oxygenation and Cognitive Function in Elderly
As aging, the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and cognition dysfunction increase rapidly in Taiwan. How to promote cognitive function of the elderly is an essential issue. Cross-sectional and longitudinal studies indicate that aging is associated with reductions in cerebral hemoglobin and blood flow which result in impairment of cognition and healthy. Many studies have reported that exercise training and /or regular physical activity is benefited in the improvement of systemic circulation and cerebral oxygenation. However, few has examined the effects of resistance exercise on cerebral oxygenation in elderly population. By reviewing previous studies, we compared the effects of resistance and aerobic exercise on cerebral oxygenation and cognition in individuals with advancing aging. The following recommendations were made. Regular aerobic exercise at moderate to high intensity enhance cerebral oxygenation in association with improvement of cognitive function. In addition, long-term resistance exercise training facilitate the release of neurotransmitters which may slow down the decline of cognition in seniors. The combination of aerobic and resistance exercise training may help aging group improving cognitive function and health more efficiently.
