JOY RUN Mice can display symptoms of “runner’s high”—less anxiety and a diminished ability to feel pain—study suggests. After a nice long bout of aerobic exercise, some people experience what’s known as a “runner’s high”: a feeling of euphoria coupled with reduced anxiety and a lessened ability to feel pain. For decades, scientists have associated this phenomenon with an increased level in the blood of β-endorphins, opioid peptides thought to elevate mood. Now, German researchers have shown the brain’s endocannabinoid system—the same one affected by marijuana’s Δ9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—may also play a role in producing runner’s high, at least in mice ( Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 2015, DOI: 10.1072/pnas.1514996112 ). Antagonists to Anandamide block the “runner’s high in mice even after prolonged exercise

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
