Healthcast : Impact Intense Exercise has on the Brain

LUBBOCK, TX - A new study revealed intense exercise improves memory. Scientists at McMaster University followed nearly 100 young adults for six months. They found those who vigorously exercised showed significant improvement in their high-interference memory and a greater increase of a protein that supports the growth, function, and survival of brain cells.

Allowing fresh air into the bedroom may lead to better sleep. Researchers found people who opened doors or windows before going to bed lowered the amount of carbon dioxide in their bedrooms and improved the quality of sleep.  

Babies are able to understand as young as ten months old that hard work pays off. The Harvard/MIT study suggested they did it by watching how hard others were willing to go to reach a goal.
