The true significance of these findings however can only be appreciated when you take into account the fact that older adults typically lose 1-2 percent of their hippocampal volume each year. The control group in this study saw a 1.4 percent decline in hippocampal volume -- which means that over a single year the two groups saw a whopping 3.4 percent relative difference in hippocampal volume. This data makes it clear that achieving a regular exercise routine is not simply a way to nullify age-related losses in brain function but also an effective approach to improving mental function and avoiding dementia and depression altogether.
