The risk of dementia in the elderly is greatly reduced by dancing.
Researchers at the University of Colorado in the United States have tried elderly and have found that the dance group has detected a remarkable change in brain nerve cells.
The researchers took the elderly into three groups, the first group made a quick walk for an hour three times a week and improved their eating habits. The second group was stretched and balanced the workout three times a week and the third group met dance classes three times.
Dancing to prevent dementia … "Dance block oblivion"
Six months later, the first and second groups showed less white matter in the brain, but in the group taking the dance lessons, the white matter of the brain did not decrease, the researchers said. Reduced white matter of the brain is known to slow cognition and signal processing speeds and increased cerebral cortex density in the brainstem of the dance, which is related to processing speed and memory. In addition, changes in neurons were detected in the brain and the researchers analyzed that dance acts to prevent oblivion.
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the University of Magdeburg University Hospital also confirmed that the average age of 68 years continues to learn new steps and dances and learn to dance, resulting in a noticeable increase in attention and flexibility within six months. He also revealed that the brain structure changed to create a new neural network. It is a study that sophisticated dance training that learns new rhythm stimulates the brain associated with memory.
"I recommend the Tango for Parkinson's disease"
Parkinson's disease, one of the diseases of the common nervous system, has proven to be effective in dancing. Some studies have shown that tango, which improves flexibility, is most suitable for Parkinson's disease.
The American neuroscientists Madeleine Hackney and Gammon Airhart conducted 13-week dance lessons in patients with less severe symptoms of Parkinson's disease. As a result, the team who was dancing for two hours a week confirmed that the ability to exercise many muscles, such as walking, walking and balance improved. Especially the tango team got better than the waltz team. The researchers interpreted that the tango, which was standing on a leg or often stopped and then moved again, was effective in improving muscular sport performance.
Patients with Parkinson's disease, who are very difficult to move quickly, are said to be "smooth" when activated. Explain that this quick behavior is trained by the tango dancing movements. Researchers at the Emory University Medical School also reported that the spatial cognitive ability of Parkinson's patients was clearly improved as a result of tango compression. Recently, "Parkinson's Dance" is spreading and is based on the results of these studies.
"Salsa reduces the risk of falls"
The Jena research team found that one of the Latin dances, Salsa, clearly lowered the risk of falling. Salsa is considered dance by young people in a tense movement, but the elderly are trained for only a few weeks and gain a great advantage in terms of balance, ability and endurance. The University of Evora and the Japanese Aging and Health Research Group in Portugal also found that the dance program for the elderly improves their perception of the body and reduces the risk of falling if they take dance lessons for several weeks.
Brain scientific knowledge for dancing "The brain wants to dance"
The brain researcher Dr. Jang Dong-sun and neuroscientist Julia Christensen present brain science information in the dance, "The Brains Want to Dance". Two scientists describe dance as "the practice of keeping me in line with the rhythm of the world," describing what happens to the brain when you are dancing.
The neurotransmitter that is secreted when you know the success comes when dopamine learns to dance. Dopamine plays a key role in learning and memory. When you dance, dopamine is released, causing a positive emotion and a new motivation. Also, when we dance, we use much more muscle than we think and these muscle movements are associated with the brain's neural circuits and use the brain as a whole. Explain that due to this psychological and biochemical action, a small miracle appears in our body while leaving our bodies in pace and dance.
We are talking about dance that is suitable for different moments such as dance for healing, dance for temptation and so on, dividing it according to the number of dancers dancing only with a song, dancing together . I encourage people to meet and interact with different people, to move their bodies, not to dare to express their feelings and to express their feelings and to encourage them to move their bodies once in a lifetime.
