Recent research suggests that intensive exercise four hours after learning is the key to learning and remembering information.
Fernandez et al (2016) examined 72 people on their memory. He compared the effect of immediate exercise, with exercising a few hours after learning, along with a control group (who performed no exercise).
When tested on how much they could remember, the group who exercised a few hours after learning performed the best. Fernandez used MRI scans to reveal that the activity in the hippocampus - which is connected to learning - was 'sharper' in this group.
Do the results hold the key to successful learning and exam success?
