Need another reason to encourage your employees to work out? A new study gives you a good one.
According to HealthDay, the researchers examined such cognitive functions as muscle control, executive function (a type of cognition that includes working memory, self-monitoring, and the ability to suppress distractions), and other neurological functions.
The researchers hope to use their findings on exercise and the brain to shed light on methods of preventing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Add the potential cognitive effects to the already-well-established physical benefits of exercise, and you’ve got an even stronger campaign for fitness to present to your staff.
