    adolescents and children. The world is a competitive place these days, which means there are high academic standards for children every single year. The previous article talks about the declining percent of play and the increasing amount of time spent on schoolwork. (Gray, 2011) Having children spend more time in school and doing homework, may actually be more counterproductive to the academic growth of the child according to a study by Sattlemair and Ratey. (2009) The way that Sattlemair and Ratey describe the brain and how it grows is very similar to how you grow a muscle by going to the gym. Essentially when you go out and exercise you put your brain under physiological stress that wears it out, much like a bicep muscle that has been broken down by the persistent barbell curl repetition. So then what happens to your bicep muscle? Well you rest it and give it adequate nutrition and eventually your muscle comes back bigger and stronger than before. Well this is not exactly what happens inside of the brain, throughout the brain comprises neurological pathways that form to help you recall information or how to do a particular movement. The more you use these pathways the stronger the pathway becomes and the faster you are able to recall information to be able to use it. Additionally, Sattlemair and Ratey explain emerging theory, which hypothesizes that play helps develop the frontal lobe. (2009) This finding is extremely important to children with ADHD as it is said to…

Muscles are also put in “compartments” a muscle compartment is known as, “a group of functionally related muscles enclosed and separated from others by connective tissue fascia.” (Sullivan & Gan, 2015). These fascias are also known as intermuscular septa. The muscle compartments also hold the blood…
