PsyPost and MSN featured Professor Mara Mather on her work showing breathing exercises could reduce levels of peptides associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

“I was interested in whether inducing slow oscillations in heart rate during slow paced breathing would help increase clearance of amyloid beta from the brain…I hypothesized it could do so as the practice induces some of the features of deep sleep – slow physiological oscillations and low noradrenergic activity – that have been identified as promoting clearance of brain waste” said Professor Mather.
