Build Your Brain Through Exercise

Better learning through exercise. Apparently a few minutes of exercise at 55-60% of your heart rate maximum, helps you learn by building new brain cells.  But be careful, too much exercise isn't good:  “When your body is stressed and you have high levels of cortisol,' a hormone released in response to physical and psychological stress, Ratey says, 'the brain cells will shrink, and eventually they’ll die. '"
