McMaster researchers featured on The Nature of Things

A trio of McMaster researchers figure prominently in a documentary first aired Thursday on CBC’s The Nature of Things.

In the documentary, Myth or Science 2: The Quest for Perfection, host Dr. Jennifer Gardy takes on several myths about mental and physical fitness, by putting them to the test herself.

The show spends plenty of time with Mark Tarnopolsky, Martin Gibala and Steven Bray, looking at the effects of exercise on aging, the efficiency of high intensity interval training and how the brain can be trained to develop more willpower.

The documentary also features many very attractive shots of campus and of other parts of Hamilton.

The episode is currently available online.
