Body and Mind: Adjusting to Normal Life After Cancer Treatment

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Cancer, like so many other overwhelming or life-altering situations, can really stick with a person. For many, the end of treatment is met with a flood of emotions that can make it difficult to get back to normal life.

For Penn patient Catherine Hagele, the end of treatment was simply the end of one chapter in her journey, and the beginning of another.

Novel Study Is First to Demonstrate Brain Mechanisms That Give “the Iceman” Unusual Resistance to Cold

Wayne State University Division of Research

Dutch adventurer Wim Hof is known as “The Iceman” for good reason. Hof established several world records for prolonged resistance to cold exposure, an ability he attributes to a self-developed set of techniques of breathing and meditation — known as the Wim Hof Method — that have been covered by the BBC, CNN, National Geographic and other global media outlets. Yet, how his brain responds during cold exposure and what brain mechanisms may endow him with this resistance have not been studied — until now. Wayne State University School of Medicine professors Otto Muzik, Ph.D., and Vaibhav Diwadkar, Ph.D., changed that.
