Why is dancing so good for your brain? – 為何跳舞對大腦有益?

Dancing improves brain function on a variety of levels. Two recent studies show how different types of practice allow dancers to achieve peak performance by blending cerebral and cognitive thought processes with muscle memory and ‘proprioception’ held in the cerebellum. Through regular aerobic training that incorporates some type of dance at least once a week anyone can maximize […]

How do we learn? – 我們的學習過程

Every time we learn something of consequence, we change our brains a little bit. Learning involves physical alterations in neurons and in the synapses that link them together. These minute structural changes in individual neurons underlie broader changes in the functional organization of the brain. Learning induces the formation of new synapses, and this in […]

Synapses shrink during sleep – 睡眠期間突觸會收縮

New studies have shown that while we sleep, our neural connections shrink—by 18-20% (according to one study) when compared to waking time. Why? Researchers think it’s because our neurons need time to “downscale”—becoming weaker for a time to prevent becoming too saturated and unable to learn new things. In fact, they argue, this may be […]
