AAIC 2023 | Exercise as a non-pharmacological therapy for cognitive impairment

Dr Ryan Falck, PhD, from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada, discusses the benefits of exercise training for cognitive health in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). For the first time, clinical guidelines are available for healthcare practitioners to directly help individuals suffering from cognitive decline by prescribing exercise as a non-pharmacological therapy. However, the specific types of exercise which may be most beneficial and in which populations is yet to be determined. The frequency and intensity of the exercise is another area for further research, as well as the differences between resistance and aerobic training in improving brain health. This interview took place at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® (AAIC) 2023 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
