Learning by moving: Effects of physical activity on brain functioning and academic achievement of primary school students: A cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT).
In recent years, more and more research indicates that there is a relation between physical activity and cognition. Children with higher levels of physical fitness and better developed motor skills generally also perform better at school. Also, interventions focusing on physical activity seem to have positive effects on childrens' cognitive development. In my project, I examine the effectiveness of two types of interventions in physical education on childrens' academic achievement. Also, I lam looking at effects on childrens' brain functioning, to get more insight into how physical activity is related to cognition.
