Movement in childhood can maintain and promote cognitive function in old age

Studies Research over the past decade has shown that movement in childhood influences the development of cognitive functions. An international research group has clarified the changes in the neural network of the brain and the structure of the cortex on which the positive aspects are based. Relationship between movement in children and the maintenance and promotion of cognitive function in adulthood.

The results, published in the journal NeuroImage, explain that people who are physically active in childhood have higher cognitive functions in adulthood. However, no such association has been found between task performance and post-childhood exercise, suggesting that childhood exercise is particularly important for long-term brain development and cognitive health. They are physically active in childhood (up to 12 years of age) and have superior cognitive functions in adulthood; However, they failed to find a link between cognitive function and post-infant physical activity.

The positive relationship between children’s movement and cognitive function was shown in the modular segregation (* 1) of brain networks, increased interhemispheric connectivity, greater cortical thickness, less dendritic branching, and reduced density. The formation of the brain network is susceptible to environmental and experience-related factors.It is believed that exercise during this time optimizes the development of the brain network and is related to the maintenance and promotion of cognitive function in adulthood. Research over the past decade has shown that childhood exercise affects the development of cognitive functions.
