Exercise and Inhibition in Deep Brain Regions

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Research shows that physical exercise can help in learning and memory. Yet, it is hard to access those deeper brain regions like the hippocampus and striatum. Using MRS, our team has focused on these specific parts of the brain to determine a proof of concept. There is also a blood-biomarker component, that is correlated to the inhibitory transmitter GABA. Using a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout, we were able to analyze what happens to those specific regions in the brain.
