Free Community Workshop: Physical Activity, Cognition and Memory

Free Workshop for the Community!

 A growing body of scientific evidence shows regular physical activity activates a variety of biological molecules (called myokines) that induce structural and functional changes in the brain. This workshop will reveal the most recent evidence supporting the findings that moderate physical activity benefits cognitive functioning, improves memory, and plays a protective role in reducing the risks of developing cognitive impairment.
