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!
