The risk of dying in the elderly is greatly reduced by dancing.
Researchers at the Colorado State University in the United States have tested older people and found that the dance group detected significant changes in brain nerve cells.
The researchers divided the elderly into three groups – the first group went for three hours a week and improved their eating habits. The second group received a workout and balance work three times a week, while the third group attended dance lessons three times.
Dancing to prevent dementia … "Dodger Blocks Lost"
After six months, the brain in the first and second groups had fewer white matter, but in the group that received dance less brain white matter was not reduced. It is known that reduced brain white matter slows the cognitive function and signal processing speed, and the brain cortex density in the group of dance brain associated with processing speed and memory has increased. In addition to this, neuronal changes in the brain were detected, and the researchers analyzed dance activities to prevent forgetfulness.
The Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Germany and the University of Magdeburg Hospital also confirmed that the average 68-year-old man continues to learn new steps and dance and learn to dance, resulting in a significant increase in attention and flexibility over a period of six months. It also showed that the brain structure has changed to create a new neural network. This is a study that complicates dance training that learns a new rhythm, stimulates brain-related memory.
"I recommend tango for Parkinson's disease"
Parkinson's disease, one of the most common diseases of the nervous system, has been proven as an effective dance. Some studies have shown that tango, which improves flexibility, is best suited for Parkinson's disease.
American neurophysiologists Madeleine Hackney and Gammon Airhart performed a 13-week dance course for patients with less severe symptoms of Parkinson's disease. As a result, the group that danced for two hours a week confirmed that there was an increased ability to use a lot of muscle, such as walking distance, steps and balance. Especially the tango group got much better than the Welsh group. Researchers have interpreted that tango, who stood in one leg or was often discontinued and then re-directed, effectively improved muscle sports.
Patients with Parkinson's disease who are very difficult to move quickly are considered "smooth" when they are "activated". Explain that this fast-moving behavior is taught by tango dance moves. Researchers at Emory University School of Medicine also reported that tango compression resulted in a clear improvement in spatial cognitive ability in Parkinson's patients. Recently, Parkinson's Dance has spread and is based on the results of these studies.
"Salsa reduces the risk of falls"
The research team in the yen found that one of the Latin dances, Salsa, clearly reduced the risk of falls. Among Salsa young people, they are considered dance moves, while elderly people are trained for a few weeks, and they have great benefits in terms of balance, fitness and endurance. Evora University and the Japan Aging and Health Foundation Research Group in Portugal have also found that a dance program for older people improves their perception of the body and reduces the risk of falling down if they have been doing dance classes for several weeks.
Brain scientific insight on dance "Brain wants to dance"
Brain scientist Dr. Jang Dong-sun and neuroscientist Julia Christenen show the brain science insight in the dance "The Brains Want To Dance". Two scientists are aware of the dance as "keeping me up to the rhythm of the world", describing what happens to the brain when you're dancing.
An uninterrupted release that occurs when you succeed comes when dopamine learns to dance. Dopamine plays a key role in teaching and remembering. When you dance, release dopamine, causing positive emotions and new motivation. Even when we dance, we use much more muscle than we think, and these muscle movements are related to brain nerve schemes and use the brain as a whole. Explain that because of this psychological and biochemical activity, our bodies are a little miraculous while we leave our bodies in rhythm and dance.
We are talking about dances that are suitable for different moments, such as dancing for healing, dancing for temptation, and so on, depending on how many dancers dance, singing only rhythm, talking dancing together, dancing at the friends' invitation, etc. I urge people to meet and collaborate with different people, move their parts of the body, do not dare to express their emotions and express their feelings, and encourage them to move their bodies once in a lifetime.
