The mind-body connection : how physical activity and physical fitness affect academic performance
Vedrana Sember, Shawnda A. Morrison, 2018, scientific monograph

Abstract: Physical activity is behavior and is influenced by many factors. These factors are classified into four levels: physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and ecological (Lindquist, Reynolds, & Goran, 1999). Many experts note that additional hours of physical education have a positive impact on the academic success (Shephard, 1997) since learning of complex movements stimulates the frontal cortex in the brain, which is also active in learning and problem solving (Jensen, 2005). The results of these studies suggest a positive relationship between physical and academic achievement (Singh, Uitjtdewilligen, Twisk, Van Mechelen, & Chinapaw, 2012). Indeed, how physical activity affects the intellectual development or academic performance of the child and how academic performance changes through different quantities of physical activity and time are explored in this work.
