ABSTRACTReferring to neurogenesis seems to be a very recent issue in the field of science, but the reality is that it has been investigated since the year 1962, when appeared the first experiment using animal models to measure the increase of neurons amount in certain areas of the brain. Since that time, many researches have been developed that seek to discover how this process is carried out and what factors modulate it. This review focuses on exercise and environmental enrichment as two of the main associated conditions that have been associated with neurogenesis. This review focuses on exercise (aerobic and/or resistance) and environmental enrichment as two of the main conditions that have been associated with neurogenesis in adults. The results of the articles show that both exercise and environmental enrichment promote the formation of new neurons, however, exercise produces greater effects.
