#Harvard scientists have identified a natural #protein linked to #endurance_exercise that promotes brain health and encourages the growth of new nerves involved in learning and memory. The finding, reported by scientists from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School in the journal Cell Metabolism, may explain why endurance exercise improves #cognitive function, particularly in older people. If the protein — known as FNDC5 — can be developed into a drug, it might lead to improved therapies for such #neurodegenerative diseases as #Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, according to the researchers.
