Interesting observation. If the heart was not pumping the same amount of oxygen rich blood to the brain, a person would not think as clear. I think this is why men get depression after open heart surgery. There is less oxygen going to the brain. It's also why people who are low in iron have less concentration. It's just a theory :)
