Abstract

Aerobic exercise programs have been shown to enhance cognition, functional ability, and may be a great, cost efficient therapeutic strategy for patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Can a long-term (15-year long) aerobic exercise program be used as a preventative therapeutic strategy to delay or prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease? Some potential outcomes of this study could be that long-term aerobic exercise effectively delays the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in individuals at high risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease and that long-term aerobic exercise will enhance cognition, functional ability, and decrease losses in hippocampal volume that occur due to aging.
