Brain faster when chewing

February 26, 2013

Japanese research shows that brain’s reaction times are up to 10% faster when people chew.

“Our results suggest that chewing induced an increase in the arousal level and alertness in addition to an effect on motor control and, as a consequence, these effects could lead to improvements in cognitive performance,” researchers at the National Institute of Radiological Sciences say.

This is bad news for people who are regarded as too slow to chew and walk at the same time.
