Scientists have figured out the easiest exercise to improve brain function



They investigated the hypothesis that running increases overall neural activity in the prefrontal cortex, since physical activity requires highly precise coordination of balance and movement and induces blood flow to this area of ​​the brain. To test this connection, experts used the Stroop color test and collected data on hemodynamic changes associated with brain function.

The test is that the word for the color does not match the color of the word itself. The resulting dissonance leads to a delay in the reaction of the reader, who should name the color of the word, and not read the word itself, which makes it possible to assess the changes taking place in the brain. The results showed that after 10 minutes of average speed running there was a significant reduction in color detection delay. In addition, the scientists noted an increase in mood among the participants in the experiment.
