Mental therapy

When Dr. John Koutras thinks about exercise, he doesn’t picture the sweating that improves our physical strength and performance. He goes right to brain health. “Exercise leads to neurobiological health,” he said at a recent talk sponsored by the Howard Center. “Mood is linked to higher amounts of serotonin, nerve growth, and the good kind of hormones. All of these releases allow for neurogenesis to occur.”
