PURPOSE This study was to investigate the impacts of senior brain heath exercise (SBHE) program for 12 weeks to basic active physical fitness, cognitive function and brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in elderly women. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Subject of this study is total of 24 women in the age of 65-79 who can conduct normal daily activity and communication but have not participated in regular exercise in recent 6 months.Expand
The Impact of Physical Exercise on Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) Level in Elderly Population
TLDR
Physical exercise was able to maintain geriatric cognitive function performance by BDNF protein regulation by analysing the role of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) as a regulatory protein affected by exercise. Expand
Effect of Brain Gym ® exercises on cognitive function and brain-derived neurotrophic factor plasma level in elderly: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Brain Gym exercises sessions significantly increase plasma BDNF level in the elderly population and may suggest evaluation of the effects of Brain Gym ® exercises as a strategy in the treatment of disorders associated with central degenerative changes. Expand
Short-time high-intensity exercise increases peripheral BDNF in a physical fitness-dependent way in healthy men
TLDR
Short-time high-intensity exercise seems to be more efficient in increasing BDNF concentration, and physical fitness level influences this response, as healthy individuals with lower physical fitness levels were more responsive. Expand
Mental Training Enhances Cognitive Function and BDNF More Than Either Physical or Combined Training in Elderly Women With MCI: A Small-Scale Study
TLDR
Positive effect of mental training on the cognitive parameters, parallel with BDNF elevation, suggests that mental training is a more useful, safe, and persistent strategy to attenuate the progression of MCI probably via BD NF elevation, but the effect size is relatively small elevation. Expand
A multi-modal exercise intervention that improves cognitive function and physical performance, elderly with mobility-related disability: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
A multimodal exercise program with intense mental activities enabled an improvement in both cognitive and physical performance in old people with loss of competences due to mobility. Expand
The effects of toe grip training on physical performance and cognitive function of nursing home residents
TLDR
Toe grip training improves not only toe grip strength itself, but also cognitive function, and change intoe grip strength was an independent factor of change in MMSE in nursing home residents in those populations. Expand
Effects of Physical Exercise on Neuroplasticity and Brain Function: A Systematic Review in Human and Animal Studies
TLDR
PE was effective for increasing the production of neurotrophic factors, cell growth, and proliferation, as well as for improving brain functionality in human and animal models. Expand
Evaluation of beneficial effect of a dual-task exercise based on Japanese transitional games in older adults: a pilot study
TLDR
In the study, older adults who participated in cognitive-motor DT intervention improved significantly with regard to motor ability and cognitive function results, suggesting a game-like DT exercise may help maintain the healthy life of older adults compared to no intervention. Expand
Beneficial effects of an intergenerational exercise intervention on health-related physical and psychosocial outcomes in Swiss preschool children and residential seniors: a clinical trial
TLDR
Intergenerational exercise is comparable and in certain dimensions superior to peer group exercise and a promising strategy to integratively improve mental health as well as physical fitness in preschool children and residential seniors. Expand
Aquarobic exercises improve the serum blood irisin and brain-derived neurotrophic factor levels in elderly women
TLDR
Aquarobic exercise was found to improve the serum irisin and BDNF levels; thus, it could be effective in preventing degenerative brain diseases and enhancing brain function of elderly women. Expand

Effects of a Physical Training Programme on Cognitive Function and Walking Efficiency in Elderly Persons with Dementia
TLDR
This study shows that a physical activity programme can slow cognitive decline and improve quality of walking in elderly persons suffering from dementia. Expand
The Effects of Physical Exercise with Music on Cognitive Function of Elderly People: Mihama-Kiho Project
TLDR
Physical exercise combined with music produced more positive effects on cognitive function in elderly people than exercise alone, attributed to the multifaceted nature of combining physical exercise with music, which can act simultaneously as both cognitive and physical training. Expand
The effects of multimodal exercise on cognitive and physical functioning and brain-derived neurotrophic factor in older women: a randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a multimodal exercise intervention can achieve larger effect sizes than those generally resulting from single modality interventions, in older women, when compared with controls. Expand
Fitness Effects on the Cognitive Function of Older Adults
TLDR
Fitness training was found to have robust but selective benefits for cognition, with the largest fitness-induced benefits occurring for executive-control processes. Expand
The effects of strength training, cardiovascular training and their combination on flexibility of inactive older adults.
TLDR
Results indicate that resistance training may be able to increase range of motion of a number of joints of inactive older individuals possibly due to an improvement in muscle strength. Expand
Physical activity and executive functions in the elderly with mild cognitive impairment
TLDR
The results show that although a (nearly) significant improvement in tasks appealing to EF was observed in both the walking group and the hand/face group compared to the control group, the results should be interpreted with caution. Expand
Effects of Exercise on Structural and Functional Changes in the Aging Brain
TLDR
It is shown that exercise serves as a behavioral intervention to prevent cognitive decline as well as neurodegenerative diseases, and long-term regular exercise in parallel with various learning experiences will be required to prepare successful aging. Expand
Endurance training enhances BDNF release from the human brain.
TLDR
The increased BDNF expression in the hippocampus and the enhanced release of BDNF from the human brain following training suggest that endurance training promotes brain health. Expand
[Effects of Tai Chi exercise program on physical fitness, fall related perception and health status in institutionalized elders].
TLDR
Tai Chi exercise is revealed as a useful nursing intervention for elderly that enhances flexibility and balance, decreases fall related perception and also increases the health status. Expand
[Effects of music therapy and rhythmic exercise on quality of life, blood pressure and upper extremity muscle strength in institution-dwelling elderly women].
TLDR
The study suggests that this program can be applied for older women in long-term facilities to improve quality of life, blood pressure and upper extremity muscle strength. Expand
