The Global Council on Brain Health (GCBH), an independent collaborative of policy experts, doctors, and academics, including AUPOA Unit Director Professor Nicola Lautenschlager, has published the first evidence-based consensus report on physical activity for brain health.

Based on scientific evidence, the GCBH have concluded that a physically active lifestyle, including purposeful exercise such as: walking, cycling and strength training, can have positive impacts on brain health. Further to this, incorporating physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle can help to reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
