On walking, neuronal growth and creativity

There have been numerous studies elucidating the fact that walking increases neuronal growth (APA article detailing it: http://www.apa.org/monitor/2010/06/exercise.aspx).

But the most brain-tickling theory I’ve heard explaining it is that as nomadic peoples, when we arrived at a new location (after lots of walking or course), it would benefit us to have a rush of neuronal growth to deal with the new flora and fauna that we had come to encounter.

Whatever the true reason it happens, I like it 🙂
