The proliferation of new neurons is astounding, but as we get older, this capacity decreases.
Nevertheless, neurogenesis continues even when we get older. The old belief that we’re born with a determined number of neurons, and that throughout life we do nothing more than lose them, is false. There is a decline in neuroplasticity, but the brain continues to be considerably malleable.
First of all, it’s best to have an enriching environment that challenges the mind. Second of all, it’s known that moderate exercise also favors neuroplasticity. On the other hand, old age, chronic stress, and certain blood components seem to impair it. Neurogenesis in the hippocampus can be stimulated when we learn new things.
Neuroplasticity is the mechanism that produces learning. Each person’s capacity for learning is determined both by genetics and by education. For example, each person’s IQ will, for the most part, be determined by genetics, but intellectual effort can also affect the plasticity of the brain and one’s abilities.
Even if you have a genetic predisposition for learning, it will be nothing more than potential if you don’t know how to develop it. If you don’t use it, not only are you not developing it, but you’ll also lose the possibility of doing so.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
