Default Movement and Stress Response

This is kind of old, but I just stumbled onto it.

Now Strick seems to have solved his own problem. In the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the Pittsburgh neuroscientists showed that they have discovered a discrete, elaborate network in the cerebral cortex that controls the adrenal medulla. It seems that the connections between the brain and the adrenal medulla are much more elaborate than previously understood. Complex networks throughout the primary sensory and motor cortices are tied directly to our stress responses.
Exercise works for me. So the why doesn't really matter, but still think this stuff is interesting.

Also interesting that I've read that women get a bigger boost in mental state from cardio, and that exercise is basically a treatment for ADD (generally, but also that bit about exercise before school helping kids).

And then I wonder if there is a connection between the increased diagnosis of depression (particularly in women) and our overall more sedentary lifestyle.

I didn't read the article, but I can state for myself and others I have spoken to, the endorphins I get from exercise really work as a mood enhancer and stabilizer. I get 90% of my cardio outside so being in the sun really helps as well, especially during the winter months.
