The risk of dementia in the elderly is significantly reduced by dancing.
Researchers at Colorado State University in the United States tested older people and found that the dance group discovered a noticeable change in the nerve cells of the brain.
The researchers divided the elderly into three groups, and the first group quickly walked an hour three times a week and improved their eating habits. The second group had three times a week getting stretching and balancing the training, and the third group met three times with dance classes.
Dancing for the prevention of dementia … "Dance blockade of oblivion"
Six months later, the first and the second group showed less white matter in the brain, but in the group that received dance lessons, brain protein was not reduced, researchers said. It is known that decreased brain white matter slows down the cognitive function and speed of signal processing, and the density of the cerebral cortex in the dance brain, which is associated with the speed and processing memory, has increased. In addition, changes in neurons in the brain have been detected, and the researchers have analyzed how the dance works to prevent oblivion.
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the University of Magdeburg also confirmed that the average 68-year-old continues to learn new steps and dances and learn to dance, resulting in a significant increase in attention and flexibility within six months. It has also been discovered that the brain structure has changed to create a new neural network. It's a study that complicates dance training that teaches a new rhythm stimulates the brain associated with memory.
"I recommend tango for Parkinson's disease"
Parkinson's disease, one of the common nervous system diseases, proved effective in dancing. Some studies have shown that tango, which improves flexibility, is most suitable for Parkinson's disease.
American neuroscientists Madeleine Hacknei and Gammon Airhart spent a 13-week dance lesson in patients with less severe symptoms of Parkinson's disease. As a result, the group that danced for two hours a week, confirmed that the improved exercise ability is full of muscles, such as walking, stepping and balance. In particular, the tango group became much better than the valerian group. The researchers explained that the tango, which was standing on one leg or was often stopped and then moved again, was effective in improving muscular athletic performance.
For patients with Parkinson's disease, for which it is very difficult to move quickly, it was said that they are "smooth" when activated. Explain that this quick behavior is trained through tango dance moves. Researchers at the Emory Medical School also reported that the spatial cognitive ability of Parkinson's patients was clearly enhanced as a result of the tangus that squeezed. Recently, "Parkinson's Dance" is expanding and based on the results of these studies.
"Salsa reduces the risk of falling"
The Jena research team found that one of the Latin dances, Salsa, clearly reduced the risk of falling. Salsa is considered to be young people in tense moves as a dance, but the elders are also trained for only a few weeks and receive a great advantage in terms of balance, fitness and endurance. The Evora University and research team for Japanese aging and health in Portugal also found that dance program for older people improves their perception of the body and reduces the risk of falling if they take dance classes for several weeks.
Brain Scientific Insight on Dance "Brain Wants to Dance"
John Dong-Sun and neuroscientist Julia Christensen show brain science in dance, "Brain want to play". Two scientists describe dance as "the practice of keeping me in line with the rhythm of the world," describing what is happening to the brain when you play.
Neurotransmitter is excreted when you experience success when dofamina learns to dance. Dopamine plays a key role in learning and remembering. When playing, dopamine is released, causing positive emotions and new motivation. Also, when we dance, we use much more muscle than we think, and these muscular movements are associated with neural circuits of the brain and use the brain as a whole. Explain that due to this psychological and biochemical action there is a little miracle in our body, and we leave our bodies in rhythm and dance.
We are talking about a dance that is suitable for different moments such as dance therapy, dance for testing and so on, dividing it according to how many dancers sing only rhythm by dancing, talking to dance, dancing called by friends, and so on. I encourage people to meet and communicate with different people, move their bodies, do not dare to express their emotions and express their feelings, and encourage them to transport their body once in a lifetime.
