Physically fit children may have fitter brains, too
Physically fit children may have fitter brains, too (August 21, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Chicago - Children who are physically fit have more white matter in their brains, according to a report published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. Researchers studied 24 children age 9-10 years, examining white matter tracts in participant's brains. They also accounted for factors such as learning disabilities, socioeconomic status, IQ, ADHD status that would have affected differences in the brain. Results showed physically fit children had more fibrous and compact white-matter tracts in their brain when compared to less-fit peers.
