Free Seminar | The Role of Exercise in Cognition

This is an in-person seminar at the MedFit Center, 151 Kalmus Drive, Ste K3 in Costa Mesa, CA. Hosted by Alzheimer’s Orange County.

This presentation explores the significant impact of physical exercise on cognitive functions. It delves into how regular physical activity enhances memory, attention, and problem-solving skills, while also reducing the risk of cognitive decline and diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Through a review of scientific studies and practical examples, we will uncover the mechanisms behind the brain-boosting benefits of exercise and provide actionable tips for integrating effective exercise routines into daily life to optimize mental performance.
