Testosterone Surge After Exercise May Help Remodel The Mind.

The New York Times (9/12, Reynolds) “Well” blog reports that “a growing and very appealing body of science has established that exercise spurs the creation of new brain cells, a process known as neurogenesis.” According to a study published last month in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, “male sex hormones surge in the brain after exercise and could be helping to remodel the mind. The research was conducted on young, healthy and exclusively male rats – but scientists believe it applies to female rats, too, as well as other mammals, including humans.”
