Yet, a new research article involving the University of Arizona proposes that greater attention also should be paid to what's right with children who grow up in high-stress environments in order to help them succeed.
Mounting scientific evidence shows that exercise is good not only for our bodies, but for our brains. Yet, exactly why physical activity benefits the brain is not well understood.
In a new article published in the journal Trends in Neurosciences, University of Arizona researchers suggest that the link between exercise and the brain is a product of our evolutionary history and our past as hunter-gatherers.
Congratulations on wanting to return to the UA!
Applying for readmission to the UA and the Department of Psychology, is a two step process that is also dependent on whether or not you left on probation or after being disqualified from the UA.
Returning after being disqualified/dismissed from the UA:
NOTE: 12 units of coursework at a 3.0 GPA average, from another institution, is required before completing the readmission application. Please make sure you've done this before applying.
