Intervention

Physical activity may have positive effects on cognition in healthy, community dwelling, older adults. It may also have positive effects on cognition in patients with mild cognitive impairment. Analyzing cerebrospinal fluids before and after an intervention of physical activity may give clues to the mechanisms behind improved cognition.

In a study called “Effects of physical activity on cognition in patients with mild cognitive impairment, a randomized controlled trial”, participants in the Gothenburg MCI study are offered participation in a randomized controlled trial. Cognitive functions are assessed before and after a four month physical activity intervention, using a battery of neuropsychological tests. Blood and cerebrospinal fluids are sampled in order to investigate if an intervention of physical activity can induce changes in biomarkers associated with neuroplasticity and degeneration.
