Brain Structure Adapts to Environmental Change


Recommended Posts

Found this article about neurogenesis on science daily. Seems like theyre wanting to develop methods to replace neurons.

ScienceDaily (June 14, 2011) — Scientists have known for years that neurogenesis takes place throughout adulthood in the hippocampus of the mammalian brain. Now Columbia researchers have found that under stressful conditions, neural stem cells in the adult hippocampus can produce not only neurons, but also new stem cells. The brain stockpiles the neural stem cells, which later may produce neurons when conditions become favorable. This response to environmental conditions represents a novel form of brain plasticity.
