Forget something? Veteran athletes who skipped their regular exercise routine for as few as 10 days were shown to experience a reduction in blood flow to eight key areas of the brain. The "hippocampus," towards the center of the brain (indicated by the two red lobes in the image above), is responsible for memory formation, storage and retrieval. When exercise is neglected, it can contribute to many health problems, including memory loss. Time to get moving, for your memory's sake! <3
