Exercise enhances neuronal stem cell (NSC) proliferation and neurogenesis. However, the effect of exercise on NSC proliferation surrounding the area of damage after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is unknown. Here, we investigate the effect of running on NSC proliferation following TBI in the rat. Wistar rats received TBI and were randomly divided into two groups: (1) non-exercise group and (2) exercise group. The exercise group ran on a treadmill for 30 min/day at 22 m/min for 7 consecutive days… CONTINUE READING
