“Our physical movements can directly influence our ability to learn, think and remember. Our physical movements call upon some of the same neurons used for reading, writing, and math.  Physically active people report an increase in their academic abilities, memory, retrieval, and cognitive abilities.  Certain kinds of exercise can produce chemical alterations that give us strong, healthier, and happier brains.  A better brain is equipped to think, remember and learn.” Dr. John Ratey, A User’s Guide to the Brain
