Fit heart can slow brain ageing, US researchers say

BBC News 2 August 2010

In other words jogging keeps also he brain healthy. They dont say anything about a better IQ though  : “The participants with smaller brain volumes on magnetic resonance imaging did not show obvious clinical signs of reduced brain function.”  May be because a big brain is not really necessary.
