What's the Difference Between Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia?
There are lots of things that can go wrong with the brain as we age. Actually some of these can strike a person while they are still young.

Brain Evolved to Need Exercise
The basic idea:
As humans transitioned from a relatively sedentary apelike existence to a more physically demanding hunter-gatherer lifestyle, starting around 2 million years ago, we began to engage in complex foraging tasks that were simultaneously physically and mentally demanding, and that may explain how physical activity and the brain came to be so connected.

The implications:
Having this underlying understanding of the exercise-brain connection could help researchers come up with ways to enhance the benefits of exercise even further, and to develop effective interventions for age-related cognitive decline or even neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
