Rocking Chairs

It used to be the ill effects of sitting so much in older age was offset (a little at least) by the stimulation of rocking in a chair. Not so much any more.

Too bad. Sitting is not good for your brain! Here is the latest science to show what nowadays should go without saying (and usually does because we do not want to hear it:-).

Conversations about sitting on a gym ball come to mind. So does this Post entitled “The Spry Guy.”

Meanwhile PE class is optional…

At least it is in some K-12 schools, according to what I have been told. And it has been that way for a while: we now have college kids taking our Tai chi class who have no ever had any PE classes before.

There is a price to pay: http://neurosciencenews.com/fitness-kids-gray-matter-7997/

High Intensity Exercise Boosts Memory

Interestingly, I didn’t see the what the exercise was in the Abstract; and they also mentioned, indirectly, the importance of nutrition – or the importance of factors dependent on nutrition.

Just more evidence in support of what is already established: more exercise, more better!

The Yin & Yang of Brain Health

Yesterday I shared a Post on recent research showing what increases brain size (or prevents it’s age-related deterioration). That is the Yang.

Here is research about the invaluable importance of sleep!

A Huge Finding

Here is the article about research on Lymphatic vessels in the brain.

We talk a lot about lymph drainage in Tai Chi – in particular there are certain exercises that we do in which we discuss the effect on the dura mater (the covering of the brain where lymph vessels are now known to exit). There are a lot of implications!

What We Know Vs What We Don’t Know

This review of research is a great example of learning something about nature (our brains in this case), that is just enough to realize that everything we know just barely scratches the surface.

“… a large and growing body of research…” (on exercise and the brain)

“This extensive review resulted in three main observations. First, the most consistent behavioral effects of acute exercise are improved executive function, enhanced mood, and decreased stress levels. Second, neurophysiological and neurochemical changes that have been reported after acute exercise show that widespread brain areas and brain systems are activated. Third, one of the biggest open questions in this area is the relationship between the central neurochemical changes following acute exercise, that have mainly been described in rodents, and the behavioral changes seen after acute exercise reported in humans. Bridging this gap will be an important area of future study.”
