The current proposal seeks to index the effect of acute aerobic exercise on excitatory and inhibitory balance using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in aging and in chronic stroke. There exists replicated evidence that acute bouts of aerobic exercise increase sensorimotor gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) within a two-hour period. Our lab has the technical capability to reliably measure GABA between two sessions and we have developed a functional measure of motor learning that alters GABA in o...
