SUMMARY; PUMPING UP THE BRAIN
A broadcast from CBS televised a video clip from The Early Show. The show was about how exercise helps the brain perform better and may have crucial implications for kids. The host, Dr. Debbye Turner-Bell, provides many striking examples proving the importance of exercise: A high school in Illinois substantiated the importance of exercise with empirical test’s, which showed how students in PE classes performed better in a math test compared to inactive students. A professor at Harvard medical school, Dr. John Ratey, states that exercise produces growth factors called BDNF that helps producing brain cells in hippocampus – an area in the brain associated with memory and learning.

Dr. Debbye Turner-Bell finishes the clip with stating that less money is used on PEclasses, when studies show how physical exercise is needed.
