Short, Intense Exercise for Teen Health

Although most teenagers feel like they are practically adults, a new study finds one important way in which adolescents resemble children: exercise. The study, from the University of Exeter, finds that there are more physical benefits to exercising in short, high-intensity bursts—similar to how children play exercise, and use their motor skills—than to exercising with…

Physical Activity Linked to Sufficient Sleep

Exercises like walking, yoga, and even gardening can help people get enough sleep at night. Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania investigated whether physical activity can impact sleep quality. The results indicate that many physical activities are associated with quality sleeping. However, some activities, like childcare, are associated with…

Yoga Reduces Anxiety in Older Adults

Many adults over age 60 struggle with mental health issues. As many as 40 percent of older adults report having anxiety and up to 20 percent of older adults experience depression. A new study finds that yoga is one of the most effective and persistent ways for older adults to reduce anxiety and depression. The…

Exercise Mitigates Aging’s Effect on the Brain

For older adults, exercise helps maintain body control. A new study finds that continuing physical activity into old age can mitigate the some effects of aging on the brain’s movement abilities. Older adults who exercised the most were the least impacted by a particular type of age-related brain change, while those who exercised the least…

More Americans Practicing Yoga

More and more research demonstrates that yoga is not only good exercise, but a way for people to connect their mind and their body. Increasing numbers of American adults and children are taking advantage of yoga’s benefits. According to a new report, the number of people practicing yoga in the United States has nearly doubled…

Less-Supervised Children Are More Physically Active

Children should be active for at least 60 minutes each day, yet few children are. A new study from a collaboration between Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, and Dalhousie University in Halifax finds that children whose parents or caregivers allow them to travel or explore independently are more physically active. The researchers designed their…

Fitness Linked to Better Memory in Older Adults

Aerobic exercise, which includes activities like walking, dancing, or swimming, plays a big role in being healthy. A new study finds that aerobic exercise can also help your memory. Researchers at Boston University Medical Center investigated the relationship between cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), memory, and cognition in adults. The research revealed that older adults with higher…

Running Can Improve Your Walking

You might suspect that if you wanted to be better at walking, you should walk more. But according to a new study from University of Colorado Boulder (CU-Boulder) and Humboldt State University, you would be wrong. The research team discovered that older adults who run regularly are more aerobically efficient—in effect, better walkers—when they walk,…

Exercise Boosts Memory for Adults in Their 60s

The benefits of physical activity are not just for young people. A study led by researchers at Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany investigated how physical exercise affected the memory of older adults. They discovered that aerobic exercise improves older adults’ memories by increasing blood flow to the hippocampus, a key part of the brain for…

Adults Get Cognitive Boost from Many Activities

Experts agree that it is important to exercise, especially for older adults. But does the type of exercise make a difference? Research from the University of Montreal’s Institute of Geriatrics finds that older adults can receive the same cognitive benefits from low-impact activities like walking or stretching as from high-intensity aerobic and strength training. The…

What is iLs?

iLs is a complementary approach to brain fitness which can be integrated into a broad variety of educational, therapeutic and self-improvement programs. In the same way we can train our bodies to become stronger and healthier, iLs trains the brain to process sensory, cognitive and emotional information more effectively. With better synaptic connectivity, we perform better. It’s about as simple as that.

We start with music and movement, and then gradually integrate language and cognitive processes. The exercises appear simple but become increasingly difficult as we add new layers for simultaneous processing. The program involves no computers or screens of any type. Someone once referred to iLs as “a boot camp for the brain.” We’d like to think of it more as play, and we all know we work hardest when we play!
