Researchers are studying how aerobic exercise can affect brain activity and attention in children ages 7-11. Participants will be required to attend two study sessions lasting about an hour and a half each. All study procedures, including exercise testing and MRI, will be free of charge and will take place in the UK Medical Center and the Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Center. Participants will receive: an image of their brain, valuable information about their health, and compensation for their time.
