Compared with the nonaerobic group, fMRI testing showed that subjects in the cardiovascular training group had significantly greater activity in the medial frontal gyrus, the superior frontal gyrus, and the inferior parietal lobule, and significantly lower activity in the anterior cingulate cortex.
Among the areas of progressive deficit in the placebo group were regions concerned with functioning of the attentional system, including the posterior thalamus, tectum, posterior cingulate, and superior parietal lobule.
Significant volume losses in the inferior parietal lobule and, in some patients, the postcentral gyrus, account for most of the parietal deficits in these patients.
