We take it for granted, but the way we breathe can affect our physical and emotional health, from burning more fat to giving us a six pack.

What Scientists Can Learn From Ballet

Learning Empathy

Empathy is a key skill for innovators. Scientists need to empathize with their materials, and immerse themselves into the problems they seek to illuminate. Einstein visualized travelling astride a speeding light beam, and pondered what the world would look like if he traveled at the velocity of light. Nobel Laureate Barbara McClintock imagined being the genes of the corn plants she studied, even claiming to become their "friend".

 

Dancers are masters of empathy. Ever since antiquity dancers have been great translators and purveyors of emotions and meaning. They inhabit music, characters, objects, and give life to them in front of our mesmerized eyes. We can learn from them. MacArthur Fellow John Cairns generated valuable insights about bacterial processes by dancing his experiments.

This is Your Brain on Exercise

This is Your Brain on Exercise | Yoga for CE | Scoop.it

Seniors who fit in the most daily physical activity – from raking leaves to dancing – can have more gray matter in important brain regions, researchers reported on Monday.

 

The scientists have images that show people who were the most active had 5 percent more gray matter than people who were the least active. Having more little gray brain cells translates into a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease, other studies have shown.

 

“People really want to know what they can do to reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Cyrus Raji of the University of California in Los Angeles, who presented his team’s findings to a meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.

 

“This shows it is easier than you think.”

Jason's curator insight, December 17, 2012 7:54 AM

  After reading this article, I learned that exercising can prevent Alzheimer's disease. According to the article, participants of a study who exercised on a regular basis had up to 5% more grey matter in their brains. The grey matter that formed helps prevent or slows down the development of brain diseases such as Alzheimers. In a sample of close to 100 people who were diagnosed with Alzheimers, almost 75% of them did not exercise on a consistent basis. This shows that only 25 people who developed Alzheimers exercised on a consistent basis, showing that exercise can be used to prevent or slow down the development of brain diseases. While we mostly look towards the physical benefits of exercise, it is also important to be aware of the benefits exercise can have on your internal system.
