Executive Vice President and Provost
The College of Education will offer a free webinar for educators entitled "Exercise and the Brain: New Research on how Exercise Sparks Learning Mood." The webinar will address how we, as the human animal, were designed as a physical creature capable of incredible physical tasks. Due to the modern conveniences afforded to our culture, we have taken on a sedentary lifestyle, with very little physical outlets. We have also seen the increase in mental health problems over the last 40 years, and the decline of youth test scores. New research shows a link to the lack of exercise and chemical imbalances in the brain. Learn how exercise holds keys to our intelligence and mental well-being.
