Brain Motion And Emotion

Presentation given to the World Medical and Health Games, Graduate Medical School University of Limerick.

Exercise increases ‘neurogenesis’ (growth of neurons) in the hippocampus – a region important for memory and implicated in cognitive ageing.


In this presentation I answer the following questions

  1. What is the link between physical activity and human brain evolution?
  2. How has human brain evolution enabled us to emotionally engage and anticipate the intentions of others?
