Study: Dancing may offset some effects of aging in the brain

A new study led by a Colorado State University researcher shows that kicking up your heels can actually be good for your noggin.

The research team demonstrated for the first time that decline in the brain’s “white matter” can be detected over a period of only six months in healthy aging adults — faster than most studies have shown. On the bright side, a group of test subjects who participated in dance classes during that time actually saw improved white matter integrity in an area of the brain related to memory and processing speed.

A paper on the findings was published March 16 in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience.
