The neurobehavioral effects of exercise on memory function during pregnancy

Paul D. Loprinzi.


Memory function is essential for optimal daily functioning. Emerging work demonstrates that memory function may be compromised during pregnancy. Encouragingly, exercise engagement may subserve memory function among various populations; however, limited research has evaluated whether exercise can attenuate memory impairment during pregnancy. This letter addresses this issue. Albeit limited, there is some research suggesting that exercise may alleviate this pregnancy-induced memory impairment, with mechanisms discussed herein. Future work in this under-investigated area is needed.

Key words: episodic, maternal, neurotrophin, physical activity
