  author={C{\'e}sar Acevedo-Triana and Jorge Enrique {\'A}vila-Campos and Luis Fernando Alarc{\'o}n C{\'a}rdenas},
The effect of exercise on brain function has been reported in several studies over the years, but the mechanism that could explain this effect is not always consistent, and instead, there have proposed several different mechanisms. This review shows in its initial part a description of the effects of exercise on brain structure and function at different levels, from the molecular and epigenetic level to cognitive level. Then, the basic features of motor control and the effects of training… Expand

Running wheel training does not change neurogenesis levels or alter working memory tasks in adult rats
It is suggested that although exercise may have effects on brain structure, a construct such as working memory may require more complex changes in networks or connections to demonstrate a change at behavioral level. Expand
Biological bases of physical activity as a tool for prevention of occupational risks
Physical activity promotes positive adaptations in the nervous system, sympathetic and parasympathetic activity, metabolic and endocrine functions, immune response functions, cardiorespiratory functions, fat, bone and muscle functions, sensory and motor functions, cognition and behavior, sexual functions and occupational skills that help the health of those who practice it, in addition to prevent disabling situations.

Evidencia proveniente de estudios en modelos animales acerca de los efectos del ejercicio y el enriquecimiento ambiental sobre la neurogénesis en el adulto
Referirse a neurogénesis hace parecer que sea un tema muy reciente en el campo de la ciencia, pero la realidad es que se está investigando aproximadamente desde 1962, año en el que apareció el primerExpand


The impact of voluntary exercise on mental health in rodents: A neuroplasticity perspective
It is concluded that the wheel running paradigm represents a unique environmental manipulation for the investigation of neurobehavioural plasticity in terms of gene-environment interactions relevant to the pathogenesis and therapies of certain neuropsychiatric conditions. Expand
3.21 – Neurophysiology of Motor Skill Learning
Significant advances have been made in the past several years in understanding the role of the various cortical motor areas in motor learning. It is clear that motor skill acquisition is associatedExpand
An integrative theory of prefrontal cortex function.
It is proposed that cognitive control stems from the active maintenance of patterns of activity in the prefrontal cortex that represent goals and the means to achieve them, which provide bias signals to other brain structures whose net effect is to guide the flow of activity along neural pathways that establish the proper mappings between inputs, internal states, and outputs needed to perform a given task.

Exercise: a behavioral intervention to enhance brain health and plasticity
High-density oligonucleotide microarray analysis has demonstrated that, in addition to increasing levels of BDNF, exercise mobilizes gene expression profiles that would be predicted to benefit brain plasticity processes, suggesting that exercise could provide a simple means to maintain brain function and promote brain Plasticity.

MAP2 and synaptophysin protein expression following motor learning suggests dynamic regulation and distinct alterations coinciding with synaptogenesis
A difference in learning-induced expression in the mammalian brain is indicated compared to reports in the literature, which have often focused on stimulation to induce alterations in protein expression. Expand
Motor training compensates for cerebellar dysfunctions caused by oligodendrocyte ablation
It is shown that, despite these abnormalities, epigenetic factors, such as motor training, are able to fully rescue cerebellar-directed motor skills. Expand
Mechanisms of motor learning in the cerebellum 1 1 Published on the World Wide Web on 24 November 2000.
The author maintains the hypothesis that reorganisation of the neuronal circuit by error-driven induction of LTD constitutes the major memory and learning mechanisms of the cerebellum, and the validity of the hypothesis is examined in light of currently available data in recent studies of the Cerebellum.

The missing link between action and cognition
Complex motor tasks are particularly suited to reveal the crucial link between action and cognition and the generic brain areas at the interface between these domains. Expand

Motor co-ordination in Wistar strain albino rats that were maintained on a protein-restricted diet for a period of 1 year immediately after the weaning period was evaluated by substituting 75% of the normal diet with a carbohydrate-rich diet deficient in protein. Expand
Learning processing in the basal ganglia: A mosaic of broken mirrors
This model proposes that the body and its surrounding environment are represented in the striatum in a fragmented and repeated way, like a mosaic consisting of the fragmented images of broken mirrors, and this is how the basal ganglia select actions based on environmental stimuli and store adaptive associations as nondeclarative memories.
