"Exercise is as close to a magic bullet as brain fitness gets," John Medina, PhD, Brain Center for Applied Learning - Prevention (article link)

"Exercise is as close to a magic bullet as brain fitness gets," says John Medina, PhD, director of the Brain Center for Applied Learning at Seattle Pacific University. Physical activity bathes neural tissue in oxygen-rich blood, increasing the production of chemicals that improve memory, attention, and problem-solving.
- When sedentary adults in one study jogged for half an hour 2 or 3 times a week for 12 weeks, their memory and ability to juggle tasks improved by 30%.
- A study in the American Journal of Public Health reported that women with large social networks slashed their risk of dementia by as much as 26%.
