Background and objectives: While there is growing evidence that physical activity promotes neuronal health, studies examining the relation between physical activity and brain morphology remain inconclusive. We therefore examined whether objectively-quantified physical activity is related to brain volume, cortical thickness and grey matter density in a large cohort study. Additionally, we assessed molecular pathways that may underlie the effects of physical activity on brain morphology.
