Goodwin SJ. Neurogenesis: remembering all or forgetting some. Kodali M, Megahed T, Mishra V, Shuai B, Hattiangady B, Shetty AK. J Neurosci 36: 8112-8122, 2016). These studies found conflicting results: running (which increases neurogenesis) induced forgetting in two studies, but there was no difference in memory retrieval after exercise in another. To reconcile these studies, one must understand the processes behind memory maintenance and recall and consider context, species, and other factors.
