The effects of aerobic exercise and resistance exercise on brain nerve growth factors in children
Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of aerobic exercise and resistance exercise on brain nerve growth factors in children. The subjects of this study were 20 males aged from 8 to 9, who were divided into aerobic exercise group (AEG, n=7), resistance exercise group (REG, n=7) and control group (CG, n=6). The aerobic exercise and resistance exercise program conducted 50 minutes per day, three times a week, for 12 weeks, and applied exercise equivalent to 12-13 RPE during the first period (week 1-2) and exercise equivalent to 14-15 RPE during from second periods to fifth periods(week 3-12). The results of comparative analysis are as follows; BDNF(brain-derived neurotrophic factor) was a significant increased after 12 weeks in aerobic exercise group, resistance exercise group and control group. As to the comparison of means difference before and after intervention between group, resistance exercise group more increase than control group. Serotonin was a significant increased after 12 weeks in each group but not different between groups. Cortisol was not significant different after 12 weeks in each group and between groups. The brain nerve growth factors were not different between aerobic exercise and resistance exercise.
Key Words: brain nerve growth factor, BDNF, serotonin, cortisol, exercise, children
