Resumo

Não é nenhum segredo que o exercício aeróbico pode ajudar a evitar alguns reveses do envelhecimento. Mas um crescente campo de pesquisa sugere que a natação pode fornecer um impulso único para a saúde do cérebro.

A natação regular demonstrou melhorar a memória, a função cognitiva, a imunidade e o humor. A natação também pode ajudar a reparar os danos causados ​​pelo estresse e forjar novas conexões neurais no cérebro.

Mas os cientistas ainda estão tentando desvendar como e por que a natação, em particular, produz esses efeitos que melhoram o cérebro.
