Growing more brain cells is possible, and it all comes down to a few simple lifestyle choices.
In this video from the TED YouTube channel, neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret explains how our brains can grow new brain cells through neurogenesis. The more active neurogenesis is for you, the more likely you'll have a better mood, increased memory formation, and be able to fight off the decline associated with ageing. Here are three things Thuret suggests will help you grow more brain cells:
Doesn't sound too bad, right? There some things that can decrease neurogenesis, however. Getting older causes a natural decline, but stress, sleep deprivation, and having a poor diet can make things much worse. It all comes down to keeping active and maintaining a somewhat healthy lifestyle. A healthy body means a healthy mind.
