Abstract

暗記や勉強を行うときは、室内を歩き回りながら行うと効果的であるといわれている。しかしパソコン作業などのデスクワーク中に歩き回ることはできない。デスクワーク作業中に可能な運動としては微小揺脚運動(貧乏ゆすり)が考えられる。しかし、これは歩行に比べだらエネルギー消費が非常に小さくなる運動規模の非常に小さい運動である。本研究では貧乏ゆすりが良導絡(電気的な経絡)の自律神経活動に与える効果をノイロメトリー法による皮膚電気反応測定により吟味した。被験者は22-23歳の健康な男子10人である。運動時間は4分間である。貧乏ゆすり前に4分間、貧乏ゆすり後に8分間のノイロメトリーを行った。貧乏ゆすり前に比べ運動後の初めの4分間は良導絡の皮膚電気伝導が上昇した。次の4分間に大略元に戻る傾向があった。従って貧乏ゆすりのような小規模な運動といえど、統計的有意に良導絡自律神経活動を活性化することが示唆される。また、良導絡自律神経情報系LH_2およびLH_3に影響が大きく現れる傾向が見られた。逆に、 LH_5およびLH_6への影響は比較的小さい傾向があった。

Walking around in a room is said to be effective for studying or learning something by heart. However, it is impossible to walk around when a person is doing desk work like using a computer. We thought that it is possible to do a slight knee jiggling exercise (binbo yusuri) as an alternative to walking about. However, knee jiggling has a very low energy consumption compared with walking. In this study, we determined effects of this exercise on activities of ryodoraku (electrical skin meridians) autonomic nervous systems by neurometry measurements of their electrodermal activities. Ten healthy males ranging from 22 to 23 years of age were subjects. The exercise time was 4 min. The electrodermal activities were measured for 4 min before exercise and for 8 min after exercise. The electrical conductivity of ryodoraku increased during the first 4 min after exercise. During the succeeding second 4 min after this, they had a tendency to approximately return to the state before exercise. The result suggested that the activity levels of ryodoraku autonomic nerves were increased by the knee jiggling exercise although the exercise is a very small scale exercise with a very low energy consumption. There was a tendency that the exercise had a larger effect on the meridians LH_2 and LH_3, and a relatively smaller one on LH_5 and LH_6.
