Runner’s World magazine features Texas Health Dallas, IEEM researcher
An article in Runner’s World magazine highlights a new study from the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas that suggests lifelong exercise may lower a person’s risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. The research, led by Benjamin Tseng, Ph.D., a scientist in the IEEM’s Cerebrovascular Lab, found regular exercise preserved the integrity of white matter in the brains of committed, lifelong exercisers. White matter impacts how quickly someone can retrieve a piece of information and how well they can solve a problem. The IEEM researchers had discovered in previous work that the volume of white brain tissue was higher in older, committed exercisers. Their new study, published in the journal NeuroImage, found that the fiber tracts that make up the white matter and deliver messages within the brain, are better preserved and better at sending signals in lifelong exercisers.
