Physical Activity Improves Attention and Memory in Children

Physical activity improves attention and memory in children.

Healthy, but less physically fit pre-adolescent children appear to have more difficulty in executive control and relational memory processes. These functions include the ability to selectively focus attention or change focus when needed and to remember facts or objects that have been recently shown.

PositiveTip:  Exercise is good for all ages, and is especially critical for school-age children and adolescents.
