Michele's Musings...
Dance may be best for the brain

You may like to read a newspaper article about the class I gave last week, to Stroke Sufferers, in the Romford Recorder organised by UK Health Radio presenter Stewart Pearce.

And links in so well with this article in the NY Times that says Dance may be best for the brain.

Well worth a read. I like this bit...."one group showed an actual improvement in the health of some of the white matter in their brains, compared to six months before. The dancers now had denser white matter in their fornix, a part of the brain involved with processing speed and memory."

In summary “The message is that we should try not to be sedentary,” she said. “The people who came into our study already exercising showed the least decline” in white matter health, she points out, and those who took up dancing showed white-matter gains.
