Intermittent Stress Keeps Brain More Alert, says Study
Balance is needed in every aspect of life. Too little stress can be boring and too much can prove fatal for the health, but it is the right amount that will help in giving right kind of performance.
Not only performance, but balanced amount of stress is also said to improve the health. Daniela Kaufer from the University of California was of the view that the general perception about stress is that it is bad.
However, now it has been found that stress is not bad for health when having it in the right amount. "Some amounts of stress are good to push you just to the level of optimal alertness, behavioural and cognitive performance".
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers carried out an experiment on rats. After assessing the rats, it was found that when rats witnessed shorter stressful events then it is also felt by stem cells, which then leads to the birth of new stem cells.
Proliferation of new stem cells was found to be improving rats' mental performance. After assessing the result, the study researchers have reached at a conclusion that intermittent stress prove beneficial for the brain and keeps it quite alert.
