Exercise-Induced Effects on GABA Levels in the Hippocampal and Striatal Regions of the Brain

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Prior research has shown a beneficial effect of physical exercise on cognitive functioning. However, the neural processes supporting this effect remain poorly understood. This study aims to examine the effect of exercise on GABA levels measured with Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) in brain regions associated with memory.  We will test the effect of high intensity interval training (HIIT) on both GABA levels and on the concentration of blood biomarkers of brain plasticity.
