As scientists show that a weekend lie-in gives an important improvement to brain power, Here is 10 other factors which may help improve your intellect which is explained by Chris Buscombe
Scientists continue to find new evidence which points to a link between physical and mental health. A Cambridge University study suggested that jogging just few of times a week stimulates the brain. Hundreds of thousands of new brain cells were shown to have grown in an area that is linked to the formation and recollection of memories after a few days of running. An improved ability to recall memories without confusing them has a direct impact on other crucial cognitive tasks, and could lead to potential new ways of slowing down the deterioration of mental ability in old age.
Meanwhile, scientists have also recently found that particularly vigorous exercise helps release a protein that goes by the name of “noggin”. The protein acts as a counter-agent to another protein, bone morphogenetic protein, thereby stimulating the increased division of brain stem cells, keeping the brain nimble and active as we get older.
