Research Shows Prolonged Sitting Impacts Memory

Los Angeles– A new report by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, indicated adults who sit for prolonged periods during the day may experience changes in the part of their brains critical for memory. Existing research had already shown a relationship between sitting for long periods throughout the day and an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and premature death among adults who are middle-aged and older. 

The research showed sitting for prolonged periods can result in thinning of a brain region involved in forming new memories which can be a precursor to cognitive decline and dementia. See full report online at http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0195549.
