I don't think it affects the size literally. I believe that physical activity keeps the brains alert hence you are able to absorb more information.

I think that sounds more logical.

When you do physical activities, your body produces more oxygen. It helps in brain development.

Haha! If this is true then I should be part of Mensa by now. I run everyday and go the gym after work. I don't feel any smarter.

I think this is just an excuse to get people outside. Back in my days, the kids who fail all the time are always the ones who play outside so this can't be all true.

I love walking my dogs ever since I was a kid. I love taking him for a long walk and many times it turns into a nice running activity.

I agree. Kids nowadays are addicted to their mobile and won't go outside.

We shouldn't need a reason to go outside and exercise.

Hahaha I guessed the same thing too! This research would encourage or push the parents to push their kids to go outside and play.

I don't think it's true because if that's the case then your conclusion would be that Olympic athletes are geniuses.

I encourage sports and exercise in kids. You can't just sit around on the computer all day. Gotta improve on motor skills too.
