nfluence of citalopram and environmental temperature on exercise-induced hanges in BDNF

Purpose: Serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is known to increase with exercise. This increase is believed to originate from the brain and it is suggested that monoamines are involved in BDNF regulation. Heat exposure could influence the supposed BDNF output from the brain. Therefore, we hypothesized that administration of a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor could influence the exerciseinduced increase in BDNF, and that peripheral BDNF will be higher when exercise is performed…

No influence of noradrenaline manipulation on acute exercise-induced increase of brain-derived neurotrophic factor.

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.

The effect of acute exercise on serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor levels and cognitive function.

BDNF levels in humans are significantly elevated in response to exercise, and the magnitude of increase is exercise intensity dependent, which may aid in designing exercise prescriptions for maintaining or improving neurological health.

Evidence for a release of brain‐derived neurotrophic factor from the brain during exercise

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.

Exercise and Brain Neurotransmission

The results of the first studies using microdialysis and voltammetry indicate that the release of most neurotransmitters is influenced by exercise, which indicates that a further understanding of the effects of exercise on brain neurotransmission can be gained.
