Abstract

The aim of the research This research aims at recognizing the effect of Qiqong Taiji exercises on the functional efficiency of hypothalamus and medulla oblongata for old people. However we have to refer to the following:- 1. Stating the most important biochemical variables referring to the functional efficiency of hypothalamus as well as physiological variables referring to the functional efficiency of medulla oblongata for old people. 2. Setting a proposed program of Chinese QiqongTaiji exercises which suits the nature of the sample. 3. Recognizing the effect of the suggested program of QiqongTaiji exercises on the variables mentioned in the research through a comparison between the preceding and succeeding measurements. The sample of the research: It was randomly chosen from Smoha Club in Alexandria. The sample consisted of 20 persons. The results: 1. There are significant differences in favor of the succeeding measurement in some biochemical variables (CATH – Cortisol) except (TSH – T4) with the research sample (men–women). 2. There are significant differences in favor of the succeeding measurements in some physiological variables (MV – MVV – RH – RHR - VO2 max) exception (FVC – Bb – FEV1) with the research sample (men – women). 3. There are significant differences in favor of the succeeding measurement in some physiological variables (MV at rest – MVV – RH – FEV1 - RHR - VO2 max) exception (FVC – Bb – MV at work) with the research sample (men – women). 4. The health sports (Qigong Taiji) have a positive effect on functional efficiency of hypothalamus and medulla oblongata for old people (men- women). There is an improvement in these variables with various degrees.
