Exercise Could Improve Brain Functioning Among People With HIV

Brain functioning problems are common among people with HIV, affecting nearly half of people who are positive for the condition, researchers noted. “Exercise as a modifiable lifestyle behavior may reduce or potentially prevent neurocognitive impairment in HIV-infected persons,” study researcher Dr. David J.
