Your Brain, Lifetime Learning

Continuous Supply of New Neurons Tied to Lifetime Learning & Memory Source:  University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Brain Image Important Discovery by University of Pennsylvania Medical School Scientists This is breakthrough research from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.  The scientists have shown for the first time that brain neurons grow and develop over a lifetime from a single population of stem cells in the hippocampus region of the brain.  That region is the brain's center of memory and learning. It's also a key area of reaction to stress and mood adjustments. Why is This Important to You The discovery underscores how a continuous supply of new neurons throughout life is the source of youthful like learning and memory throughout your life.  The discovery was found in research on mice.  And, it sets a new benchmark.  It helps neuroscientists to determine how to enable youthful life brain conditions for memory and learning for all of
