Webinar - Let’s Play Ball: How Sex and Gender Effects Influence Sports Involvement, Hippocampal Volume, and Depressive Symptoms in Children

Date/Time:

Description: Dr. Deanna Barch will describe how sports involvement interacted with sex to predict depressive symptoms, and also how sports involvement was positively correlated with hippocampal volume in both boys and girls. Moreover, these relationships held even when correcting for family income, maternal education, race, ethnicity, age, and total brain volume. Dr. Barch’s findings will help illuminate a potential neural mechanism for the impact of exercise on the developing brain and the differential effects in girls versus boys.
