Cardiorespiratory fitness and cognitive function in midlife: neuroprotection or neuroselection?
(Ann Neurol, 2015-04)
OBJECTIVE: A study was undertaken to determine whether better cognitive functioning at midlife among more physically fit individuals reflects neuroprotection, by which fitness protects against age-related cognitive decline, ...
