Aerobic Exercise and Learning System Performance, Pt. 1


Aerobic Exercise and Learning System Performance, Pt. 1

Coggno Inc. | Mar, 18 2009

Plato said it well: “The body is the source of all energy and initiative.”

In our LMS and classroom learning systems, how can we justify a strong emphasis on active, healthy minds while maintaining an outrageous neglect for the body?

Many people don’t realize that exercise isn’t just an avenue to avoid disease and have a good-looking physique. Experts say that aerobic exercise’s benefits to the brain might actually outweigh those of the body.

In Dr. John J. Ratey’s book, “Spark–The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain,” he demonstrates the link between learning system performance and regular exercise. In his introduction he writes: “The real reason we feel so good when we get our blood pumping is that it makes the brain function at its best, and in my view, this benefit of physical activity is far more important–and fascinating–than what it does for the body.”
