Michelle W. Voss, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her colleagues reviewed 111 current animal and human studies to highlight the brain function benefits from aerobic exercise and strength training workouts for humans at all ages.

(Best Syndication News) - A study from the Mayo Clinic and several UK research institutions revealed that a human vaccine treatment was able to cure mice with prostate tumors. The vaccine for prostate cancer did not show any discernible side effects. They wanted to see if the immune system's own resources, along with the vaccine, could be used to purge prostate tumors from the body. The hope is to develop a new medical treatment that would not involve any toxic chemotherapy or radiation treatments.

Richard Vile, Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic immunologist, professor from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation and lead author of the study, said the researchers hope to begin clinical trials in two years.

(Best Syndication News) Men and boys will be happy with the results of a study from researchers at the Centre for Vision Research at York University in Canada found that young men that played video games for at least 4 hours per week had better eye hand coordination than those that did not play video games on a regular basis. The researchers presented the study results in the October 2010 issue of Elsevier's Cortex (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/cortex).

The researchers said that the way that the brain processed the eye-hand coordination or visuomotor skills were using the prefrontal cortex at the front of the brain compared to parietal cortex which is the part of the brain that is used by the hand-eye coordination. The boys that didn't play video games had their brain activity in the parietal cortex while the video gamers had the prefrontal cortex activated.
