Abstract

This chapter describes a program of research aimed at the relation of physical activity to brain health and cognition, with implications for scholastic achievement among youth. We describe a body of neurophysiological research that indicates that both chronic and acute physical activity relate to enhanced cognitive function, albeit over a different temporal duration. Such findings have important implications for public health in school age children, as physical activity stands to increase brain health and cognitive function during childhood and across the life span.
