Thoughts about sports strengthen muscles
American scientists have concluded that the thought of playing sports bring the human body muscle tone.
Such a discovery they made as a result of the experiments. In the study, 10 volunteers aged 25 to 30 years, regularly engaged in mental gymnastics. What is striking is that after a few weeks of "training" their muscles are strengthened by 13, 5%. The effect of imaginary training was maintained for three months, writes Likar.
Physiologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio Guan Yu, believes that the muscles begin to move, in response to a motor neuron impulses. In turn, the "warm-up" of these neurons depends on the strength of pulses sent by the brain. See also:
