Abstract

Exercise is an essential aspect of our daily routine to maintain overall physical and mental health. Exercise and its influence on mental health is an emerging trend in the scientific research. Exercise not only improves physical health, but also influences long-term brain function and behaviour. In this review article, we have discussed the role of biological markers that reflect improvement in cognitive function in exercise. The understanding of how exercise ensures cognitive improvement is of paramount importance for implicating the role of exercise in reducing the burden of mental problems in the society.
