Objectives The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of moderate- or high-intensity intermittent exercise (MIIE/HIIE) on the oxidative status of the prefrontal cortex and cerebellum, locomotor activities, as well as working memory performances of rats. Materials and Methods Twenty female rats were divided into four groups: (1) sham-operated (Sham), (2) ovariectomy (OVX), (3) OVX + MIIE, and (4) OVX + HIIE groups. The OVX + MIIE and OVX + HIIE groups exercised on a rat tread- mill for 7 weeks. The assessment on the working memory performances and locomotor activities were conducted on the last day of the exercise period. Levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and glutathione peroxidase (GPX) enzyme activities, as well as levels of hydrogen peroxidase (H O ), and malondialdehyde (MDA) in the prefrontal cortex 2 2 and cerebellum were determined using a spectrophotometer. Results Ovariectomy depressed the working memory, locomotor activities, the levels of SOD, CAT, and GPX enzyme activities, and elevated the levels of H O , and MDA in the prefrontal cortex and cerebellum. 2 2 Conclusion MIIE and HIIE exert their neuroprotective effects by reducing oxidative stress in the brain of ovariectomized rats. HIIE has more potent
