Physical Activity, Air Pollution and the Brain
TLDR
It is hypothesized that traffic-related air pollution exposure during exercise may inhibit the positive effect of exercise on cognition, and there is a need to investigate whether the well-known benefits of regular physical activity on the brain also apply when physical activity is performed in polluted air.
Subclinical effects of aerobic training in urban environment.
TLDR
Aerobic training in an urban environment with high traffic-related air pollution increased inflammatory biomarkers, and, in contrast to aerobic training in a rural environment, cognitive performance on the Stroop task did not improve.
The effect of acute exercise on blood concentrations of brain‐derived neurotrophic factor in healthy adults: a meta‐analysis
TLDR
In meta‐regression analysis, greater duration of exercise was associated with greater increases in BDNF, and subgroup analyses revealed an effect in males but not in females, and a greater BDNF increase in plasma than serum.
The effect of acute exercise on blood concentrations of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in healthy adults: A meta-analysis European Journal of Neuroscience: Proposed Journal Section: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience
TLDR
This meta-analysis sought to determine the effect of a single exercise session on concentrations of BDNF in peripheral blood, and found that greater duration of exercise was associated with greater increases in BDNF.
The effects of exercise on oxidative stress (TBARS) and BDNF in severely depressed inpatients
TLDR
A randomized, controlled trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of adding exercise to the usual treatment on the thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) serum levels of severely depressed inpatients.
Effects of combined exercise on cardiovascular risk factors and serum BDNF level in mid-aged women
TLDR
Although there was no difference in serum BDNF level between AEG and CEG, this study confirmed that CEG may have a possibility of positive changes in increase of serumBDNF level in mid-aged women.
The effects of physical activity and exercise on brain‐derived neurotrophic factor in healthy humans: A review
TLDR
The results from most observational studies suggested an inverse relationship between the peripheral BDNF level and habitual physical activity or cardiorespiratory fitness and more research is needed to confirm the findings from the observational studies.
Acute exercise-induced enhancement of fear inhibition is moderated by BDNF Val66Met polymorphism
TLDR
Initial evidence is provided that acute exercise can impact fear extinction in humans and this effect is reduced in Met-allele carriers, and has implications for augmenting exposure-based therapies for anxiety disorders.

This article reviewed the beneficial effects of moderate voluntary physical exercise on brain health according to the studies on humans and animals, which includes improving psychological status and
Subclinical responses in healthy cyclists briefly exposed to traffic-related air pollution: an intervention study
TLDR
Traffic-related exposure to particles during exercise caused a small increase in the distribution of inflammatory blood cells in healthy subjects and the health significance is unclear.
No influence of noradrenaline manipulation on acute exercise-induced increase of brain-derived neurotrophic factor.
TLDR
The administration of an SNRI has no effect on the exercise-induced increase in BDNF, however, effects were seen on serum cortisol, HR, and memory.
Neuroplasticity — Exercise-Induced Response of Peripheral Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor
TLDR
Results suggest that acute aerobic, but not strength exercise increases basal peripheral BDNF concentrations, although the effect is transient, and from a few studies the authors learn that circulating BDNF originates both from central and peripheral sources.
Exercise builds brain health: key roles of growth factor cascades and inflammation
Evidence for a release of brain‐derived neurotrophic factor from the brain during exercise
TLDR
It is suggested that the brain is a major but not the sole contributor to circulating BDNF, and the importance of the cortex and hippocampus as a source for plasma BDNF becomes even more prominent in response to exercise.
Respiratory health effects of ultrafine and fine particle exposure in cyclists
TLDR
Exposure to ultrafine particles and soot during cycling was weakly associated with increased exhaled NO, indicative of airway inflammation, and decrements in lung function 6 h after exposure.
Association of Traffic-Related Air Pollution with Children’s Neurobehavioral Functions in Quanzhou, China
