Exercise protects the retina, probably by raising levels of BDNF To test whether it was BDNF that was mediating the effect of exercise, the researchers injected the mice with a drug that blocked the protein. They found it reduced retinal function and photoreceptor counts in the exercised mice to “inactive levels.” The researchers conclude their findings “suggest that aerobic exercise is neuroprotective for retinal degeneration and that this effect is mediated by BDNF signaling.” Dr. Pardue says: “This is the first report of simple exercise having a direct effect on retinal health and vision. This research may one day lead to tailored exercise regimens or combination therapies in treatments of blinding diseases.” Dr.

Study Tip: Exercise

The study ended up concluding that the students who were exercising while learning did remarkably better than any of the other participants. The second study showed contrary results between two groups who were reading an in-depth chapter of a text book, one not exercising and one intensely exercising (elliptical). In this study, the intense exercise did nothing for the students immediately, although the next day recall was on par with the students who didnt exercise. From this comparison we can conclude mild exercise while studying is a great way to stimulate your body and brain to be receptive to new information (not to mention the other benefits of working out).
