#1124: Bumping Into Things?

The Staying Young Show 2.0 - Entertaining | Educational | Health & Wellness

Release Date: 05/31/2019

Are you constantly bumping into things?  It may be your brain’s fault.  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  Our vision provides us with a sense of our surroundings.  Until now, it has remained a mystery how our brain and vision work together to perceive the geometry of our surroundings.  New research out of Columbia University's Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and Aalto University in Finland found a region of the brain that orients us in our space, thus keeping us from bumping into objects.  They achieved this by using functional MRIs and magnetoencephalography.  Using these technologies, scientists were able to see where spatial recognition occurred in the brain and how quickly it emerged.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
