Could this help explain the connection between a fit body and a sharp mind?
In mice, monkeys and people, exercise releases a protein called cathepsin B. And as blood and brain levels of this protein rise, memory gets better. But the protein has a dark side, too.

In countries that give parents the tools to combine work and family, the negative impact of parenting on happiness disappears.
