On this episode of BrainTea, I am joined by Neuroscientist PhD and pro-triathlete Lenny Ramsey to discuss the relationship exercise has with building neurotransmitters and neuroplasticity.
Lenny breaks down the transformative benefits that come with staying active both psychically and mentally, specifically in regards to the flexibility of neuroplasticity.
As an athlete and Neuroscientist, Lenny has made it her goal to educate people on the damages that come with living a sedentary life and offers an alternative to be your best healthy self!
"When you excise you actually make your brain slightly more flexible.”
