Free Range Learning | Quote 01709
When children run and play, actually when any of us exercise, our muscles generate proteins that enter the brain and support the learning processes. One such protein is called brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which promotes the sort of brain development necessary for learning, long-term memory and higher level thinking. Exercise also increases blood flow to the brain, essential to thought processes. And we know that an active lifestyle stimulates neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine that are required for attention, learning and positive emotions.
