Latest research shows the connection between exercise and learning. “Exercise can improve learning ‘on three levels’: First it optimizes your mind-set to improve alertness, attention, and motivation; second, it prepares and encourages nerve cells to bind to one another, which is the cellular basis for logging in new information; and third, it spurs the development of new nerve cells from stem cell in the hippocampus.“ -John J. Ratey
