STAND UP!... An Hour Of Sitting Could Be Destroying Your Brain
Sitting for too long mightmake you more forgetful.
Researchers looked at people between the ages of 45 and 75 and asked them abouthow long they sat for each day before scanning their brains.
They found people who sat for 15-hours a day had much smaller and thinnermedial temporal lobes which are the parts of the brain that are cruciallylinked to learning and memory. The thinning can be a sign of cognitivedecline and dementia in middle-aged and older adults.
