We can’t grow new neurons in adulthood after all, new study says

Neurogenesis fully stops after the age of thirteen, researchers suggest.

Gene key in neuron generation discovered

Scientists have discovered an atypical gene that is thought to be crucial for the generation of new neurons in the brain, a process called neurogenesis. The discovery and further study of the gene might help scientists better understand how neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s affect the brain and, in term, how to address them. New neurons are born through a
