I thought I'd put this in the "finding meaning" section because we might find some hope in this.  I was surfing around the net today trying to find hope when I came across a couple of articles that might suggest that humans can grow neurons throughout life:

I thought it was interesting that they got theses findings as a result of nuclear bomb tests 60 years ago

And I also found this article that explains a little on how the process works:
