Learning throughout life

Learning throughout life

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.

Factors that can influence neuroplasticity

Factors that can influence neuroplasticity

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.

What happens in the brain when we learn?

What happens in the brain when we learn?

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.
