And Now for some news ….
Exercise and Brain Age
Physical activity (PA) and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) are associated with successful brain and cognitive aging. However, little is known about the effects of Physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, and exercise on the brain in the oldest-old.
A study published in the journal Neurocase, examined white matter (WM) integrity, measured as fractional anisotropy (FA) and WM hyperintensity (WMH) burden, and hippocampal (HIPP) volume of Olga Kotelko (1919-2014).
Olga began training for competitions at age of 77 and as of June 2014 held over 30 world records in her age category in track-and-field.
Olga had lower scores on memory, reasoning and speed tasks than the younger reference sample, but outperformed typical adults of age 90-95 on speed and memory.
Together, our findings open the possibility of old-age benefits of increasing Physical activity on white matter microstructure and cognition despite age-related increase in white matter hyperintensity burden and hippocampal shrinkage, and add to the still scarce neuroimaging data of the healthy oldest-old (>90 years) adults.

Public Perception of Chiropractic
According to a new Gallup-Palmer report that tested public assumptions about chiropractic care, 57 percent of U.S. adults are likely to visit a doctor of chiropractic (DC) if they experience back or neck pain.
This first-ever nationally representative survey, commissioned by Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, found that 33.6 million Americans sought chiropractic care in 2014, compared to a previously reported estimate of 20.6 million in 2012.
The survey discovered that a majority of U.S. adults believe chiropractic physicians are effective at treating neck and back pain. According to the report, more than half of all U.S. adults have visited a DC, and more than a quarter of them would choose chiropractic care first for back or neck pain.
The Gallup-Palmer survey also discovered that a lack of knowledge about health insurance coverage for chiropractic care and sensitivity toward costs may be preventing some adults in the United States from using chiropractic services.
