Do Lazy People Have More 'Immature' Brains?

The new findings from that researchers suggest a correlation between laziness and a less mature brain. "What we're finding is that physical activity is linked to the maturing of neural networks in the brain," according to the study leader Frank Booth.
He and his colleagues offer two possible explanations for the association, both of which appear equally plausible. Either physical activity causes the brain to grow in some ways, or specific genetic combinations encourage both physical activity and the greater maturation of some brain areas.
