And Now for some news ….
Aerobic Exercise and the Brain
A recent study, published in the Journal of Physiology, looked at the relationship between Exercise and the Brain.
Aerobic exercise, such as running, has positive effects on brain structure and function, for example, adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN) and learning.
Whether high-intensity interval training (HIT), referring to alternating short bouts of very intense anaerobic exercise with recovery periods, or anaerobic resistance training (RT) has similar effects on AHN is unclear.
In addition, individual genetic variation in the overall response to physical exercise likely plays a part in the effects of exercise on adult hippocampal neurogenesis but is less studied.
The results of the study suggest physical exercise promotes AHN most if it is aerobic and sustained, and especially when accompanied by a heightened genetic predisposition for response to physical exercise.
As always, discuss all Exercise related activities with your Qualified Healthcare Provider.

Sugar Consumption and the Stress Response
A recent study published in Frontiers of Molecular Neuroscience, looked at the relationship between Sugar Consumption and the Stress Response.
Adverse early life experience is a known risk factor for psychiatric disorders. It is also known that stress influences food preference.
The authors of the study were interested in exploring whether the choice of diet following early life stress exerts long-lasting molecular changes in the brain, particularly the hippocampus, a region critically involved in stress regulation and behavioral outcomes.
In summary, early life stress and post-weaning sugar intake produced long-term effects on hippocampal glucocorticoid receptor and neurogenic differentiation 1 expression. Moreover the Authors found no evidence of altered promoter DNA methylation.
The authors demonstrate for the first time that chronic sucrose consumption alone produces similar detrimental effects on the expression of hippocampal genes as LN exposure.
As always, discuss all Nutritional recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.
