Exercise can make you smarter

Learn more about the brain-stimulating benefits of exercise-and about situations where the benefits might be more questionable-from Dr. Brian Christie (medical sciences). Christie was one of the first researchers to discover that exercise stimulates the growth of brain cells in an area of the brain involved with learning and memory. The finding debunked the long-held belief that our brains aren't able to produce new nerve cells as we age. He gives a talk on the topic at the next Caf&e#180; Scientifique on Feb. 5, 6:30-8 p.m. at Swans Suite Hotel (506 Pandora St.). Info: 250-472-4067
