John Ratey, a professor of psychiatry, describes the growing evidence that aerobic exercise remodels our brains, making us sharper mentally and providing protection against mood disorders.Teens describe how exercise helped them deal with depression, anxiety, and stress.

The program concludes with concrete suggestions from the exercise physiology expert on establishing an exercise routine that students can enjoy and stick with.
