The regular exercise is considered to be quite ideal for the perfect health but a recent result has shown that along with healthy body, the regular aerobics exercises speed up the learning and also improves blood flow towards brain.

AerobicsThis research was actually taken by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and it is also reported that this University is the first one to examine such relationships on non-human primate models.

This is not a very new concept that aerobics is good for the health of your body but this is really new to know that such exercises are also associated with the good working of our brain and thus making us active and intelligence.

This research was carried on a group of animals and it was not sure that either this hypothesis will work on human or not.

Matches and Mismatch Between Hemispheres of Brain

Human brain is a mystery; with extreme similarities and on the other hand, extreme dissimilarities between the two hemispheres. Aleft right brain human brain is divided into 2 hemispheres; the right one and the left one. When we look at both the parts, we can suddenly notice the extreme similarity between both of them. On the contrary, when we look at the functions of both of them; those are entirely and wholly different from each other. These similarities and dissimilarities are topic of this article, today.

Similarities:

All the similarities that we can find between the right and the left hemispheres of our brains are anatomical. There isn’t any similarity between these two parts that isn’t anatomical.

When we look at a human brain, we can identify the identical symmetry of both hemispheres. They seem identical; they seem to be two identical brains joined together to form one greater brain; they are one and the same thing apparently. Both are connected to each other by a flat bundle of nerve fibres called Corpus Callosum. If this weak wall is cut, we can more clearly notice the indistinguishable looks which are in fact, difficult to tell apart from each other.
