 ~脂肪酸のバランスの異常が糖尿病を引き起こす~

 

筑波大学 医学医療系 島野仁教授、松坂賢准教授らの研究グループは、肥満にともなう糖尿病の発症に脂肪酸伸長酵素Elovl6を介した脂肪酸バランスの変化が関与していることを発見し、Elovl6を阻害することで脂肪酸バランスを改善し、糖尿病の発症を抑制できることを明らかにしました。

運動リズム学習で脳波が同期する~音楽学習やダンス学習への応用に期待~

 

筑波大学システム情報系の川崎真弘助教らの研究グループは、ヒトが聴覚リズムを再現する課題を繰り返し行うと、学習が進むにつれて前頭と聴覚野と小脳でベータ波の同期が増加することを発見しました。
今回発見された結果によって、リズム学習には聴覚・運動・学習に関係する脳部位が協調して活動する必要性が明らかになりました。この発見によって、現状の音楽学習やダンス学習などの効果の検証や、この脳波同期を誘発することによる新たな学習方法の提案が期待されます。
