So researchers at UCLA wanted to see how sedentary behavior influences brain health, especially regions of the brain that are critical to memory formation.
For the study, 35 adults (i.e. 25 women and 10 men) who were middle-aged or older were recruited. Researchers also discovered that even physical activity at high levels was insufficient to offset the harmful effects of sitting for long hours.
United States researchers have published preliminary studies that show that sitting down for too long can reduce the thickness of the medial temporal lobe, a brain structure that is very involved in memory.
The team then used a high-resolution MRI scan to scan participants' brains for more detailed information about the media temporal lobe.

"Sit less, move more" is what the American Heart Association encourages all of us to do. Previously, studies have linked the thinning of brain structures with cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease.
In addition, thefindings are preliminary, and although the studyfocused on hours spent sitting, it did not take into consideration whether participants took breaks during long stretches of sedentary behavior.
In the future, researchers are aiming to find out whether sitting actually causes brain thinning and what role gender, race and weight might play in brain health in relation to sitting.
