A new study has revealed that people who play sports have a greater ability to tune out the clamor of life than those of a less athletic persuasion. They may also have a quieter, healthier nervous system as a result.

New study from Northwestern University in Illinois, in its conclusions detailed that, people who play sports have a greater ability to tune out the clamor of life than those of a less athletic persuasion.

The researchers tested this theory by hooking up two groups of athletes and non athletes to a device that delivered speech syllables through earbuds.

They analyzed the participants’ brain activity relative to the level of background noise during each syllable.

Athletes overall had a stronger response to these sounds relative to the background noise.
