Active children and youth are better able to pay attention and to focus and concentrate on a given task for a longer period of time. This also appears to be true for children and youth with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or autism spectrum disorder, with even a single bout of physical activity improving attention and focus.
Physical activity has also been shown to be associated with better memory, both in typically developing children and youth and in children with ADHD.

Physical activity also helps with convergent and divergent thinking, leading to improvements in creative problem-solving and decision-making.
