    Can you tell me what sort of daily resistance-exercise program gave the good results on brain function? Or is there a website where I could find the program?

    Thank you very much.

    Amazing research, eye-opening results. I just read an article about Ms Liu-Ambrose’s research, & although I walk for half an hour 3 – 4 times a week right now (I’m a woman in my early 50’s), it’s fair to say this research will likely change my behaviour. Moderate weight training twice a week is do-able for me, so I will do it. & I’ll also share the results of this research with my friends.

    Thankyou for your efforts to inform & help us as we age.
