A new study from neuroscientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases compared the impact of two types of exercise on older people: a traditional endurance training program (cycling, Nordic walking, etc.) vs. a mix of dance classes (jazz, line dancing, etc.). While both forms of exercise increased the area of the brain that declines with age – only dancing lead to significant behavioral changes.
