Successful interpreters want to keep getting better. There is no one better placed to give us the rundown on how to use our diet to improve our performance than Kamil Celoch.

Stanley Colcombe and Arthur Kramer and a team led by Yu-Kai Change both set out to examine whether regular exercise routines could help people perform better at mental tasks.
