On a recent TED Talks by Dr. Wendy Suzuki, summarized it as follows:

-Exercise has immediate effects on your brain.  A single workout that you do will increase levels of neurotransmitters like dopamne, serotonin and noradrenaline.  That is going to increase your mood.

-A single workout can can improve your ability to shift and focus attention.

-And a single workout will improve your reaction times.
