Pumping up the brain

New studies suggest that exercise can help your brain to function better and that may have important implications for kids.
Researchers are finding that exercise can do more than keep you fit; it can also make you smarter. One school in Illinois has developed a program that gets kids moving and learning.

Although it may appear that these kids are working out, they are actually trying to adjust their brains chemistry to maximize their ability to learn.

"We're putting kids in P.E. class prior to a classes that they struggle in and what we're doing is we're finding great, great results," said Paul Zientarski, who helps run a learning readiness program at Naperville Central High School in Illinois. The program was started in response to research showing a link between exercise and increased brain function. He says that he has seen the results.

"Kids who took P.E. before they took the math class had double the improvement of kids who had P.E. afterward," Zientarski, explained.
