Neurogenesis in the brain

October 6, 2010

Neurogenesis is a fascinating and incredible process within the human brain. Neurogenesis it is the birth of new neurons, new nerve cells pop up out of nowhere to help your brain be connected through powerful neural pathways. What do we know about neurogenesis and the brain? Does it happen everywhere? No. Don’t confuse… it with Neuroplasticity. So far clinical neuroscientists have been showing that Neurogenesis occurs in 2 sections of the brain, dentate gyrus of the hippocampus (learning and formation of new memories), I would like to mention a critical study: Henrietta Van Praag et al, NIH, Journal of Neurosciences. “Exercise enhances learning and hippocampal neurogenesis in aged mice J Neurosci. 2005, 8680–8685. The second section that neurogenesis occurs is the olfactory bulb (responsible for smellinghttp://www.functionalneurogenesis.com/blog/2010/08/olfactory-bulb-neurogenesis-big-bigger-biggest/). In the picture attached you see beatiful flowers that are around us. You need to smell constantly food, flowers it will help you creating new neurons.
