Title:  Exercise your brain and Mind

Abstract:  The presentation will focus on recent research that has examined the effects of exercise training interventions on cognitive and brain health.  I will discuss research that has examined changes in brain structure and/or function along with behavioral measures of cognition, young and middle-age individuals, and the elderly in addition to a variety of patient groups.  Although the focus will be on training to improve cardiorespiratory fitness I will also briefly cover resistance training and as well as multi-modal cognitive and exercise training program.  Finally, the presentation will identify gaps in the literature and potential solutions.
