From his studies, Bucci and his collaborators have revealed important new findings: (1) The effects of exercise are different on memory as well as on the brain, depending on whether the exerciser is an adolescent or an adult. (2) A gene has been identified which seems to mediate the degree to which exercise has a beneficial effect. This has implications for the potential use of exercise as an intervention for mental illness.
