VBM analysis revealed that four regions of gray matter left and right prefrontal cortex.

VBM analysis revealed that four regions of gray matter – left and right prefrontal cortex, left parahippocampal gyrus and left subgenual cortex – varied with duration of hormone treatment. More hormone use resulted in significantly less tissue volume in these areas. However, higher fitness scores were tied to greater tissue volume.

These preliminary only a small sample only a small selection of women and must be viewed in a much broader clinical setting, Kramer said. However, the results reflect similar studies in his lab , which continue the benefits of physical fitness to show in the elderly.

Although there were no significant effects of the interaction of hormone duration and fitness on white matter in general, higher fitness levels tied to greater prefrontal white matter regions and in the genu of the corpus callosum, a key area of the frontal areas connects the brain.
