A new study, published in the journal NeuroImage, shows that physical fitness in children may increase the volume of grey matter in specific brain regions, which can help in improving their academic performance. The study examined over 100 overweight children and found that aerobic capacity is linked with greater grey matter volume in regions that are important for learning, motor and visual processes.

The research links motor ability with higher grey matter volume in two regions essential for language processing and reading: the inferior frontal gyrus and the superior temporal gyrus. However, muscular strength did not show any independent association with gray matter volume in any brain region.
