Seena Matthew knows a thing or two about neuroscience and exercise. She holds a BA in Neuroscience, a PhD in Neurobiology and the current Assistant Professor of Biology at UMHB. This week she takes a deep-dive (no pun intended) into the neuroscience behind why swimming appears to be better than any other form of aerobic exercise for memory, mood and learning.

Swimming - The ultimate exercise for brain health. Here's Why.
can you orally ingest serotonin and dopamine?
the blood-brain barrier (BBB) has evolved to support the safety of your brain and body. It acts as a fence between the brain's blood vessels and components that make up brain tissue. The BBB defends the brain from absorbing disease-causing pathogens or toxins that may exist in the blood. Most neurotransmitters are unable to cross the blood-brain barrier and instead must be metabolised in the brain but there is the odd exception to the rule!
how to obtain your daily dose of wellbeing
chemical messengers such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA and acetylcholine and hormones such as oxytocin contribute to either your wellbeing or cognition. Here you can find out the benefits of these chemical messengers and hormones and ways you can obtain them.
