Abstract: 

Background and Objective: Effects of exercise and physical activity on function of different organs of body such as heart, lung and muscles have been the focus of interest from many years ago. During the recent years more attention has been paid to the effects of exercise on nervous system and memory. There is many controversial reports about the role of exercise on memory consolidation in young male rats so we investigated the effects of treadmill exercise on memory consolidation in passive avoidance learning.
Material and Methods: In this study thirty Male Wistar rats (3-4 months) were randomly divided into three groups (n=10 in each group). Control group trained in passive avoidance box and tested 10 min, 24 hours later. The other two groups exercised in treadmill (zero slopes) one hour at 17 m/ min for 10 days and 3 months respectively. Then they were trained in passive avoidance box and tested 10 min and 24 hr later.
Results: Obtained results showed that short-term and long-term exercise before passive avoidance training significantly (p<0.05) increased retention latency.
Conclusion: Our results showed that physical activity and exercise has positive effects on passive avoidance learning and memory consolidation.
