FRISCO – Can exercise keep your brain in shape, too?

Summit School District administrators have invited experts on brain research to present their findings at a town meeting from 7-9 p.m. today at Summit Middle School in Frisco.

The panelists are in Summit County this week for the 37th annual Winter Conference on Brain Research, being held at Copper Mountain this year.

Keynote speaker Dr. Michael Zigmond, director of the Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease Research based at the University of Pittsburgh, will discuss evidence that exercise can help reduce the vulnerability of the brain to such conditions as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease.

The town meeting is open to anyone interested in the benefits of exercise no matter what their level of expertise in the brain sciences.

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and refreshments.
