Researchers report that 4-6-year-old children who walk further than their peers during a timed test—a method used to estimate cardiorespiratory health—also do better on cognitive tests and other measures of brain function. Published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, the study suggests that the link between cardiorespiratory fitness and cognitive health is evident even earlier in life than previously appreciated.
