Memory and Physical Fitness in Children

Posted Oct 05 2010 3:13pm
A recent study in Brain Research studied forty-nine, 9 and 10 year old children. MRI measurements were taken comparing the brains of fit and unfit children. The results indicated increased volume of the hippocampus by 12% in the fit children. In addition, the fit children performed better on relational memory (the ability to remember and integrate various types of information).
