Abstract

Research documented that regular participation in physical exercise has a beneficial influence on various aspects of brain function. Human studies reported that cognition and mental performance can be improved with various types of exercise like aerobic exercise, resistance exercise and others. Participations in exercise not only improve the physical health, but also improve their academic performance, job/office performance, reduce illness and injury related to age related decline and also improve sports performance. This article features with the positive effects of exercise on cognition and brain function, at the molecular, cellular systems and behavioral levels. More research investigation on exercise related benefits for specific components of brain and cognitive function is clearly needed in all cross section of human population.
