Interesting article from the New York Times regarding the affect of Exercise on Brain Function...

The brain runs mostly on glycogen, and in people who exercise regularly, the glycogen stores in the brain are above normal, suggesting that exercise may help brain function. Very interesting read.

Very interesting article, however I'm sad to hear that so many mice had to die to reveal those findings. Yikes!
