Researchers identify protein linking exercise to brain health

U.S. researchers said Friday that a protein that is increased during endurance exercise may help boost brain health.

Researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School found that the protein, called FNDC5, turned on genes that promote brain health and encourage the growth of new nerves involved in learning and memory, when given to non- exercising mice.
