PODCAST DE LA MAÎTRISE DE L'EXERCICE

Dr. Roig fait des entrevues avec des leaders du domaine d'ordonnance d'exercice. Il parle avec des chercheurs reconnus qui travaillent sur comment l'exercice peut améliorer les différents aspects de la qualité de vie de populations variées et de groupes cliniques. Les sujets de conversation inclus: le meilleur type d'exercice pour améliorer la santé du cerveau et diminuer le déclin cognitif relié à l'âge. De plus, comment l'exercice peut améliorer la mobilité des gens qui souffrent de conditions neurologiques comme l'AVC, la maladie du Parkinson ou la Sclérose en plaques.

EXERCICE
We explore how to design novel and more effective exercise interventions to improve mobility and cognition for non-disabled people but also for people with clinical conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease as well as people with cognitive deficits.
MemoryLab-McGill-Opening-Windows-of-Neuroplasticity-dr-Marc-Roig1-DSC 9910
NEUROPLASTICITÉ
Nous étudions les mécanismes qui soutiennent les changements cérébraux résultants du vieillissement et du processus pathologique, ainsi que d'autres interventions de réadaptation impliquant l'exercice ou la stimulation cérébrale non invasive.
DSC 9898
NEUROREHAB
Nous combinons différentes interventions (par exemple, l'exercice) et des techniques (par exemple, la stimulation magnétique cérébrale non invasive) pour concevoir des traitements aux personnes qui ont besoin de récupérer après un AVC ou qui ont besoin de ralentir leur détérioration physique et cognitive.

VIEILLISSEMENT
Nous étudions les mécanismes qui sous-tendent la perte de mémoire liée à l’âge. À cette fin, nous utilisons une stimulation cérébrale comportementale et non invasive afin comprendre la raison pour laquelle en vieillissant, nous rencontrons des problèmes à nous rappeler de différents types d'informations.

SLEEP
We combine different interventions (e.g. exercise) to improve sleep quality and architecture in people with poor sleep quality. We also investigate synergies between sleep, sleep deprivation, sleep architecture, brain plasticity and memory.

DÉCOUVREZ NOS PROGRAMMES D'EXERCICE POUR LES PATIENTS

Have you suffered a stroke or been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and are interested in exercise? We are running patient training programs. Training is free but in return we will ask you to participate in our research activities. These programs will improve your health and will allow us to learn more about how to improve exercise interventions for patients like you.

Linking physical exercise to video games

“You can combine exercise and video games,” Roig said. “A lot of people think they are opposed, but really, we are failing our younger generations. The hope of this paper is to show parents and younger people that you can improve at both simultaneously.” – McGill Reporter

15 minutes of cardio improves video game performance: study

While playing video games might not seem like the most physically demanding activity, new research out of McGill University suggests that when players exercise before playing a game, they play better. -CNBC

Un científico español desvela el mejor truco para League of Legends: 15 minutos de ejercicio antes de jugar

Ahora resulta que la actividad física, además de obrar el milagro de hacernos sentir estupendamente de cuerpo y de coco, puede ayudarnos a mejorar el rendimiento en un escenario tan antagónico al movimiento (real) como es el de los videojuegos. – El Mundo

Research may link exercise to improved video game performance

A Canadian researcher from McGill University recently conducted a study that suggests that exercise can improve performance in video games. A group of young players were asked to play the popular online video game, League of Legends for 20 minutes after 15 minutes of intense cardio exercise. The players were then asked to come in and play the game again after a period of rest. Dr. Marc Roig is an associate professor at McGill University, and neuroscientist that does research on the effects of exercise on the brain. He said that two of his students, Bernat de Las Heras and Orville Li, came to him with the idea to test the theory out. –Radio Canada International
