Teens who are more physically fit may have higher executive function, meaning they would be able to control risky behavior and make good decisions. Researchers are hoping to prove that they are in turn better drivers as well. “We’re hoping that these relationships are actually there, because it would give us justification that physical activity and physical fitness may actually improve cognition for teenagers,” said Ann Lambert, Youth-Nex postdoctoral fellow and research assistant. “If we can find any sort of intervention that can keep them safe behind the wheel then we would have the power to save lives,” said Lambert. Right now researchers are in the process of finding participants, and are hoping to use students from Albemarle High School. Read CBS19 story.
