High-Intensity Exercise Increases Substantia Nigra & Prefrontal Brain Activity in Parkinson’s Disease.

Pathologic alterations in resting-state brain activity patterns exist among individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Since physical exercise alters resting-state brain activity in non-PD populations and improves PD symptoms, we assessed the acute effect of exercise on resting-state brain activity in exercise-trained individuals with PD. Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was collected twice for 17 … Continue reading High-Intensity Exercise Increases Substantia Nigra & Prefrontal Brain Activity in Parkinson’s Disease.
