Dates & Time: Saturdays, September 21, September 28, 2013 -- 10:30 a.m. ~ 12:00 p.m.

Lecturer: SHIMEGI Satoshi, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University

Many people engage in jogging, working out, and/or doing brain training games in order to improve their health. However, the effectiveness of such exercise differs by person. In some people, no effects of exercise were found. Why? How could this happen? This lecture will take a look at how the body and brain change or adapt to a new life style (a new way of using the body and brain) and consider the best way to build strength.

The content of this seminar will be similar to Assoc. Prof. Shimegi's well-received seminar of September 2010. You are sure to find this lecture of great interest!
