Carol Dweck – A Study on Praise and Mindsets
The University of Groningen is developing a speed-skating exergame for unsupervised home-based balance training in older adults.
Physical fitness may be critical for maintaining a relatively youthful and nimble brain as we age, according to a new study of brain activation patterns in older people.
What if exercise could make all areas of your brain better able to learn, heal and change — in a sense, younger?
A small study published in the journal Current Biology suggests that it might do just that.
So why don’t medical practitioners prescribe it?
Exercise elicits a wide range of health benefits, but can also be designed to produce specific clinical outcomes that improve the health and well-being of individuals with chronic disease1. In an editorial in the Canadian Family Physician, Pimlott2 described the ‘exercise pill’ as a miracle drug that has the ability to increase the capacity of almost every organ system. The wide-ranging actions of exercise cannot be matched by any prescription drug; a product designed with specific indications. As a result, multiple medications are required for patients with numerous chronic conditions. An additional benefit of exercise is that it has very few contraindications or adverse effects and there is increasing evidence that the more of the exercise pill you take, the healthier you will be3.
Uit het tv programma Katja’s Bodyscan
Professor Eddy van der Zee (hoogleraar moleculaire neurobiologie) onderzoekt de invloed van beweging op het brein. Tijdens proeven zet hij muizen op trilplaten. Het blijkt dat de diertjes door de trillingen beter presteren. Dat moet natuurlijk ook even op Katja getest worden.
