Episode 33 of the Brain Science Podcast
is an interview with Dr. John Ratey, author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of
Exercise and the Brain. We discuss why both moderate and
vigorous levels of exercise are beneficial not only for combating
problems like anxiety, depression, and attention deficit disorder,
but also for improving learning and preventing declines related to
aging. It turns out that exercise may be the single best thing you
can do for your brain!
Brain Science is hosted by Ginger Campbell, MD. It explores how recent discoveries in neuroscience are unraveling the mystery of how our brains make us human. Full show notes and episode transcripts are available at http://brainsciencepodcast.com.
