Brain boost (2010)

sport and physical activity enhance children's learning

Auteur(s): Karen Martin

Sport and physical activity participation are generally promoted for their positive impact on children’s physical and mental health. However, increased participation in sport and other forms of physical activity are also thought to lead to enhancement of cognitive functioning (information processing), memory, concentration, behaviour and academic achievement for children. This report provides an update of evidence reported from Australian and international research published in peer-reviewed journals; providing summaries of intervention research, correlational studies and research reviews.
