For quite some time, neuroscientists have taught us that it was impossible to change our brain. Now, years later, and some bit of science later, this has been proven wrong.
Neurogenesis is the process in which new neurons are generated through neural stem cells. And while many may believe that this is a process that doesn’t occur in adults, this notion is actually wrong. On the contrary, this occurs in specific areas of an adult brain. Just as broken bones will heal, so too does the brain.
With that being said, in the following video, neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret explains the process of neurogenesis and why it’s important that we partake in the correct activities to ensure this process takes place. While I could go on and on regarding the particular activities she lists, the video is quite short and detailed in explaining this process.
