Podcast Interview: Dr. Lovich with the Restoring Human Movement Podcast

Using BDNF And Exercise To Create Targeted Neuroplasticity With Michael Lovich


BDNF means Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor.

Neuroplasticity means the brain’s ability to change, in response to an external stimulus… for better or worse.

In this session, Dr Michael Lovich helps us understand how we can increase our BDNF production with exercise (and some other ways) to improve healing during the rehab process.

I met Dr. Lovich at a seminar in 2017. We talked about some new concepts surrounding rehab over a drink at the hotel bar. It was so interesting I thought we needed to hear more of his concepts on the show.

Here’s some of his references:

Receptors – Perreault et al., 2013 

Dopamine and uncertainty – Steinberg et al., 2013 

Dopamine and uncertainty – Nasser et al., 2017 

Exercise and BDNF – Ferris et al., 2007

BDNF and environment – Bekinschtein et al 2011

BDNF and environment – Sun et al., 2010 

BDNF and Olive Oil – DeNicolo et al., 2013
