The goal for this special edition of Progress in Brain Research extends beyond merely probing the yet-to-be-uncovered links between physical exercise and cognitive improvement. We aim to advance our knowledge, pushing the envelope of what is currently understood. We are particularly focused on how purposefully structured physical activities, carefully chosen participant groups, and specific cognitive areas can optimize the cognitive and mental health benefits derived from physical exercise. The inaugural volume of this series introduces 3 review articles and 7 original pieces of research, encompassing both behavioral experiments and neuroimaging studies. Our focus is on experimental research that sheds light on the immediate and long-term impact of physical exercise on cognition as well as expert opinions and systematic reviews that compile current findings and suggest avenues for upcoming research.

The second edition of The Lateralized Brain: The Neuroscience and Evolution of Hemispheric Asymmetries provides for readers a volume detailing the functional and structural differences between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, highlighting how the widespread use of modern neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI and DTI have completely changed the way hemispheric asymmetries are currently investigated.In this new edition, all chapters have been updated with recent advances in the field, and a new chapter on hemispheric asymmetries in development and aging has been integrated. Also featured is a new, larger section on laterality in social behavior, alongside a comprehensive overview about key topics in laterality research, including its history, evolutionary perspectives, brain structure, and the role of the corpus callosum. Chapters cover functional hemispheric asymmetries in language processing, motor behavior, spatial attention, self- and face-perception, emotion processing, and social behavior. Additional topics include the ontogenesis of hemispheric asymmetries and their development over the life span, as well as sex differences and associations with clinical syndromes. This volume can be used by anyone working on hemispheric biology or in courses on hemispheric asymmetries.

Huntington's disease (HD) is one of the most common dominantly inherited neurodegenerative disorders, characterized by a clinical triad of movement disorder, cognitive deficits, and psychiatric symptoms. Huntington’s Disease: Pathogenic Mechanisms and Implications for Therapeutics reviews the most up-do-date content on HD pathogenic mechanisms and cutting-edge thinking on therapeutic strategies for HD. Chapters explore areas that include the clinical features and genetic studies of HD, the cellular and molecular biology of normal huntingtin, a range of HD models, the diverse pathogenic mechanisms linked to mutant huntingtin, new approaches to HD pathogenesis, as well as emerging preclinical therapeutic approaches and clinical programs in the field.

The Neuroscience of Bach’s Music: Perception, Action, and Cognition Effects on the Brain is a comprehensive study of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music through the lens of neuroscience, examining neuroscience using Bach’s music as a tool. This book synthesizes cognitive neuroscience, music theory, and musicology to provide insights into human cognition and perception. It also explores how a neuroscience perspective can improve listening and performing experiences for Bach’s music. Written by a physician-neuroscientist recognized for scholarly articles on Bach’s music, this book uses specific examples to explore neuroscience across Bach’s compositions.The book is structured to discuss the brain’s action, perception, and cognition as connected to specific Bach concertos, tones, notes, and performances. Two guest contributors provide insight into exact mathematical, or topologic, and music theoretic aspects of Bach’s music with implications for cognitive neuroscience.
