Too Much Sitting Is Bad For Your Memory, Study Says

"Thus, the finding that more sedentary time is associated with less thickness in MTL is clinically relevant", the authors wrote, adding that this behavior may be "a possible target for interventions created to improve brain health" for adults who were middle-aged and older adults.

Live Science reports that prolonged sedentary life may eventually lead to medial temporal lobe atrophy (MTL), which is part of the brain responsible for memory.

Sitting too much could raise the risk of memory related chronic ailments like Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, according to a freshly published by researchers at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

Researchers studied people between the ages of 35 and 45.

"Sedentary behavior is a significant predictor of thinning of the [medial temporal lobe] and that physical activity, even at high levels, is insufficient to offset the harmful effects of sitting for extended periods", the researchers said.

USA researchers have published preliminary studies that show that sitting down for too long can reduce the thickness of the medial temporal lobe, a brain structure that is very involved in memory. However, physical activity does not appear to alter the thickness of the medial temporal lobe.

The researchers found that the patients who sat "too much" - anywhere from three to seven hours per day - had a noticeable thinning of the MTL (medial temporal lobe), where new memories are formed. They used the scans to identify the relationships among the thickness of the MTL, physical activity and sitting behavior.

The individuals reported that they invested from 3 to 7 hours, typically, sitting daily. With every hour of sitting daily, there was an obvious drop in brain thickness.

And although the research study discovered no substantial connections in between exercise levels and density of the median temporal lobe, the scientists stated in the declaration that "decreasing inactive habits might be a possible target for interventions developed to enhance brain health in individuals at danger for Alzheimer's illness".

Most of us are aware that spending long periods in a seated position can increase the risk of metabolic issues, heart problems, and early death. They would also like to explore the role gender, weight and race play in the effect on brain health to sitting, according to the statement.
