This KnowledgeBase entry points to two different articles that summarize the results of the same scientific study conducted in Germany. Both articles provide links to the actual text of the study report for those who like to get into the weeds of the topic. A quote from the study author: “In this study, we show that two different types of physical exercise (dancing and endurance training) both increase the area of the brain that declines with age. In comparison, it was only dancing that lead to noticeable behavioral changes in terms of improved balance.”
