HIPPOCAMPAL AND CEREBRAL BLOOD FLOW AFTER EXERCISE CESSATION IN MASTER ATHLETES – 2016


METHOD
– Endurance exercise training improves cerebrovascular health and has neurotrophic effects within the hippocampus
– 12 master athletes (age ≥ 50 years) with long-term endurance training histories (≥15 years)
– cease all training and vigorous physical activity for 10 consecutive days
RESULTS
– Resting CBF significantly decreased in eight gray matter brain regions
