mi sa che ancora su cervello non solo ne sappiamo poco ma ci dicono meno..
Regeneration of Brain Cells
For almost one hundred years, it has been a mantra of biology – brain cells do not regenerate. In a startling discovery that could have profound implications for treating brain disorders and injuries, researchers at Princeton University have discovered that new neurons are continually being added to the brains of adult monkeys. The neurons are added to the cerebral cortex of the brain.
The cerebral cortex is the most complex part of the brain and scientists were startled to find neuron formation in this “high” brain area. The cerebral cortex is responsible for higher level decision making and learning.
The researchers found the formation of new nerve cells, a process called neurogenesis, in three areas of the cerebral cortex:
Comunque l'argomento è facilmente male interpretabile..
