Neurogenesis 101

Have you ever heard that neurons cannot regenerate? This information is not actual anymore. Couple of years ago scientists discovered neurogenesis, the process of forming new neurons in our brain. There is a very interesting talk on TED «You can grow new brain cells». The author Sandrine Thuret explains that you can increase the neurogenesis by:

  • learning smth
  • running, doing yoga
  • sex
  • healthy eating (eat more flavonoids, Ω-3 unsaturated fats)

Fascinating fact: Japanese scientists discovered that texture of meal matters too. Crunchy food helps to grow your brain cells better than soft.
