MIND-BODY CONNECTION IN LEARNING [Digital Edition]

If you really want to know how humans learn, you have to go to the source. Frequent T+D contributor Ruth Palombo Weiss asked scientists, and she describes the workings of the human brain and the complex connection between it, the body, and learning performance. She also throws in some tips on how to care for, feed, and exercise our bodies and our brains. The brain is the body's hungriest organ, consuming 25 percent of the daily intake of glucose. To ensure that the brain doesn't go hungry, feed it plenty of complex carbohydrates, fats, and proteins at all meals but especially at mid-day. Physical exercise provides a great boost to mental performance, but it's not enough. You have to exercise mentally. Challenging mental tasks keep our synaptic pathways alive even as we age. Simple exercises during training can aid participants' learning and retention. Get them out of their seats and moving, breathing, and even laughing. Even simple exercises and changes in our surroundings can go a long way in making the brain more agile and more efficient.
