Regular exercise boosts cognitive capacity, according to two American and Swiss studies. According to the Swiss study, published in the journal « Scientific Reports », during intensive sporting activity, the body produces euphoric molecules called endocannabinoids, which increase the size of the hippocampus, the motor memory zone. Clearly, the faster the athlete, the larger the hippocampus. When people start exercising, their muscles contract and burn energy. As they become fitter, these same muscles respond more efficiently, using less energy for the same activity, explains the team of American researchers. Their work was reported in the « Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society ».
