There is another way to improve brain power, which is by jogging. According to the research team from Cambridge University, running or jogging triggers the growth of hundreds of thousands of new brain cells in the formation and memory storage.
“We already know that exercise is good for improving health and brain function. This research was conducted to determine the mechanisms and effects, “said Timothy Bussey, researchers from Cambridge, as quoted from India Times.
During the study, researchers watched two groups of rats. The first group of rats had unlimited access to spin the wheel toy which averaged 24 km runs per day. Then, the another groups has limited access to run in the wheel toy.
Rats are placed in front of a computer screen, and faced with two identical boxes. According to research, if the mouse go to the left with his nose, it will get a reward of sugar pellets. But if it goes to the right, it do not get anything.
The rats were then subjected to a memory test, if the answer is true, it will get better score. The results showed that rats with unlimited access of running has higher score of memory test than the another group with limited access to run.Recent search: child running, running child, run childTagged with: Brain Cells, Brain Function, brain power, improving health, memory storage, Memory Test,
