Buff Up The Brain

11/16/2016

Waldog

"Fresh neurons arise in the brain every day. ... Recent work, albeit mostly in rats, indicates that learning enhances the survival of new neurons in the adult brain. And the more engaging and chal- lenging the problem, the greater the number of neurons that stick around. These neurons are then presumably available to aid in situations that tax the mind. It seems, then, that a mental work- out can buff up the brain, much as physical exercise builds up the body."
