Older adults who exercise regularly may have an easier time finding words to express themselves than their peers who aren’t as physically fit, a small study suggests.

Reuters reported that researchers examined results from 28 volunteers, mostly in their late 60s or early 70s, who played word games on a computer and performed aerobic fitness tests on an exercise bike.

They also studied a control group of young adults in their early 20s who completed just the language evaluations, according to the report.
