Exercise for brain recovery
Repetitive exercises are helping people recover from brain injuries such as stokes according to a researcher at the University of Queensland
“Aerobic exercises like walking, or swimming or cycling can potentially enhance the brain’s ability to learn after a stroke,” Chris McKay, a phd student told 6PR Breakfast.
“When you’re doing these repetitive exercises to try and retrain the leg or the arm, you can remap the brain,” Mr McKay added.
