Effect of Acute Exercise on Brain GABA levels & Blood Biomarkers of Neuroplasticity

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

The study explores the effects of acute exercise on in-vivo brain GABA levels and neural plasticity biomarkers. GABA will be measured using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) of deep brain regions. Neural plasticity biomarkers will be examined in blood plasma. Results show that acute exercise raised heart rate compared to control intervention in all eight participants. Further data analysis is expected to show that exercise affects the level of GABA and neural plasticity blood biomarkers.
