Studies have documented brain cell growth in individuals who exercise. In fact, a research study conducted at the Colorado State University reviewed three specific types of exercise including walking, stretching and balancing and dancing. Participants were given a brain scan before and after the testing period. With the participants working out three times per week with their assigned exercise routine, only the dancer group showed improvements in cognitive function.
