Background. The evidence indicates that physical activity increases memory and ability to learn in human and animal. That is to say, the brain remarkably responds to exercise.

Objectives. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect and comparison of anaerobic and aerobic exercise on memory.

Methods. In this study, ninety male students were randomly divided into three equal groups with 30 members. The first group did 3 aerobic exercise sessions (with using treadmill) of 60 minutes per week for 8 weeks. The second group were trained in anaerobic exercise (with treadmill), whereas the third one, the control group of non-exercising subjects, get involved in no intervention/interference. Afterwards, all of ninety students were asked to The IQ TEST lab to carry out a memory experiment both in the beginning and the end of programmed in order to evaluate their memory in the terms of Wechsler Test/ on the basis of Wechsler Test.

Results. The result of this study showed the memory change from Wechsler fragment tests/subtests before and after invention to the group with aerobic training (15.50 ± 5.41), with anaerobic training (17.00 ±4.89) and in the control group (2.13 ±1.96).The difference was significant (p<0.001) so that the variation of memory scores between aerobic and control group was (p<0.001). Also, anaerobic and control group was (p<0.001). And in other words, it had a significant difference.

Conclusion. The results will enable us to better comprehend the consequences that exercise can have on learning and memory. In general, the findings of the available research showed that the 8 weeks exercise of aerobic and anaerobic had high positive impact on the memory function of the students undergoing these experimental exercising subjects. We conclude that aerobic and anaerobic exercise probably can serve as a means to improve positively the memory's function so this kind of training is recommended for benefiting memory and learning process.
