2/ IT IMPROVES MEMORY
For more than a decade, researchers have connected exercise to better brain health over time. But a new study found that just a single session of exercise can improve memory retention in the hours that follow. The report, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests that exercising four hours after learning a task can help people remember that task over the long term. Experts speculate that exercise triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain that lead to the creation of certain proteins that encourage memory retention.
