I Said I'm Playing Better!

The University of Chicago literally has sports on the brain. According to their research, the same part of your brain that "lights up" when playing a sport also turns on and gets engaged when you are talking about a sport. It's something that doesn't normally happen when talking, and isn't normally associated with language.

I'm always interested in ways to improve my brain without breaking a sweat, since there's no point to exercise. Of course, it doesn't seem like this makes you better at actually playing sports, just better at talking about them.
