Studies from four Universities: Researchers have discovered a possible connection between dysfunction of the dentate gyrus and poor glucose regulation. This may explain earlier observations that exercise benefits the dentate gyrus. Until now, scientists believed that physical activity reduced the risk of age-related memory loss by allowing glucose to be absorbed more quickly into muscle cells, but were not sure why.
