Take the stairs to slow brain ageing

first_imgClimbing the stairs can not only help you stay physically fit but also improve brain health, suggests new research.“There already exist many ‘Take the stairs’ campaigns in office environments and public transportation centres,” said lead researcher Jason Steffener from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.“This study shows that these campaigns should also be expanded for older adults so that they can work to keep their brains young,” said Steffener. The researchers found that education also played a positive role in brain health.
