122| Healthy Brain, Happy Life - Discussing Memory and Brain Enrichment with Professor Wendy Suzuki Part 2

Remove the Guesswork: Health, Fitness and Wellbeing for Busy Professionals
Episode artwork
Read more

This is part 2 of my chat with Dr. Wendy Suzuki.

Visit https://www.bodyshotperformance.com/podcasts-blog for the complete show notes of every podcast episode.


Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What meditation does to the brain


Key Takeaways:

  • It has been discovered that one of the things that exercise does for the brain is hippocampal neurogenesis. As such, the longevity of memory can be made possible through exercise and physical activity.

  • Hippocampal plaques and tangles are what causes Alzheimer’s and dementia.

  • Sleep is essential for healthy brain functioning. It can’t be emphasized enough how critical good, normal sleep and regular normal sleep is for your brain.

  • One of the most noticeable effects of exercise is on a person’s mood. You feel good and happy after a workout, and that is because physical activity stimulates the release of dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline, endorphins, and enkephalins.

  • A regular physical aerobic activity has been shown to be as effective as the most commonly-used antidepressant to treat major depressive disorder.

  • Physical exercise also stimulates growth factors that help the brain grow and create connections or synapses. A key growth factor is known as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which stimulates the birth of hippocampal neurons.

  • Regular aerobic exercise also improves the circulatory system. It stimulates brand new blood vessels in the brain, called angiogenesis.

  • The brain is the number user of oxygen in the entire body, and the more blood vessels you have, the better that that oxygenated blood can profuse the entire brain.

  • As we age, we become more and more susceptible to strokes. The best thing to have in your brain if a blood vessel bursts are more blood vessels to help in your recovery.

  • Regular walks three to five times a week have been shown to be effective in decreasing your chances of getting dementia by 30%. And if you are a high-fit woman in middle age, you are 90% less likely to get dementia when you’re older


Action Steps:

  • Practice meditation.

  • Increase your personal connections.

  • Test your brain! Sign up at Wendy’s Website and take the cognitive tests once they’re available.


Wendy said:

“I consider sleep similar to exercise in the sense that it is two of the most healthy things that you can do for your brain. I think of what’s happening with exercise during the day as kind of providing this wonderful bubble bath of good neurochemicals and growth factors for your brain… And the sleep is kind of flushing all that good stuff down the drain and filling it up with nice, clean water.”

What do you do to maintain the health of your brain? You probably already know about the importance of mental stimulation and problem solving for the health of your brain. But the truth is, our brain is an incredibly complex system that can be affected by many internal and external factors. Protecting your health isn’t as simple as doing a word puzzle—it’s a culmination of all of your daily habits and rituals.

Researchers are constantly uncovering new evidence about the interconnectedness of the human body, and the importance of creating healthy habits to protect all systems in the body, including the brain. Among the lifestyle choices you can implement to make a positive impact on your brain health, simple habits like exercise and meditation go a long way.

Dr. Wendy Suzuki is an expert in all things neural science and brain plasticity. Her evolving work has spanned from the brain’s ability to retain memory, to how exercise and meditation can improve cognitive ability, and how everyday anxiety can be harnessed for good. On today’s show, Dr. Suzuki is back to discuss brain function, cognitive enhancement, and how you can create routines that help your brain work at maximum capacity.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How brain plasticity works.
  • The science behind the mood-boosting effects of exercise.
  • How exercise can protect our brains from aging.
  • The power of meditation for the human brain.
  • How to create a ritual around meditation.
  • What cognitive enhancement is.
  • The three major areas of cognitive enhancement.
  • How aerobic exercise can help your hippocampus grow.
  • What BDNF is.
  • The two broad groups of cells in the human brain.
  • How exercise can improve your focus.
  • The effects that walking can have on your mood.
  • How neurons work in the brain.

Dr Wendy Suzuki is a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology in the Center for Neural Science at New York University.Her major research interest continues to be brain plasticity. She is best known for her extensive work studying areas in the brain critical for our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. More recently her work has focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory and higher cognitive abilities in humans. Wendy is the author of bestselling book Healthy Brain, Happy Life and has delivered several TEDx talks (links below). We discuss how exercise affects the brain; how Wendy got into exercise and ran a ground-breaking experiment in her classroom; the effects of exercise on our hormones and physiology and what the best type of exercise is for overall energy and mood. Wendy brings so much energy to our conversation, I know you’re going to enjoy this.
