Daniel Corcos Lecture “Exercise and the Brain”

Daniel Corcos, a professor at Northwestern University in the Feinberg School of Medicine, is a motor systems neuroscientist who has made significant contributions to understanding how different brain regions control movement. Dr. Corcos will address how both resistance exercise and endurance exercise are important for improving brain health, and how exercise affects brain volume as well as other measures of brain structure and function in health and disease. He is currently studying how progressive resistance exercise improves the motor and non-motor systems of people with Parkinson’s disease, and how endurance exercise changes disease severity in Parkinson’s disease. 2016-17 Helen LeBaron Hilton Endowed Chair Lecture Series - Move for Life: The Health Benefits of Exercise Across the Lifespan
