Contrary to one study that suggested exercise deletes old memories, new research finds physical activity has no negative implications for memory recall.
“Exercise is not at all harmful. It doesn’t cause any memory problems, and there are many studies proving its benefits for making new memories and maintaining good mood. Now, our study showed that exercise does not interfere with memory recall ability. Keep exercising, and don’t worry about losing your old memories.”
