Exercise can help you perform better in your finals. It’s been proven! According to a New York Times article, scientists in Ireland recently asked male college students to participant in a memory test. The men watched a lineup of photos with names. They were asked to recall the names of the strangers. Afterward, the students exercised then took the test again. The participants performed better on the memory test. See! Your brain does function better with exercise!
