“Cybercycle” improves cognitive function in older adults

The Wall Street Journal reports that according to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, exercising on a cybercycle, which is a stationary bicycle that is installed with interactive virtual-reality displays or games, improved cognitive function in a study including 102 older adults.

Researchers found that compared to controls who used standard bicycles, those using cybercycles had better performance on cognitive tests, and also had high levels of a biomarker for neuroplasticity.
