Until the 1960s, neuroscientists thought that damaged brains cells could not be replaced. But that theory was disproved when researchers started to notice the creation of neurons (neurogenesis) in the adult brains of humans and animals.
Studies show that aerobic exercise plays a key role in helping to repair damage to neurons. Exercise increases the levels of a protein named brain-derived neurotrophic factor that boosts cognitive function, including learning and memory.
Adopting specific lifestyle behaviors can have a tangible effect on how well you age: activities like learning a new language, playing a musical instrument, taking part in aerobic exercise, and developing meaningful social relationships, can do wonders for your brain.
Our minds are not static, but dynamic. The Brain has the capability to modify itself, change its structure, and to alter its biochemistry, at any age.
We can renew, rewire, heal and adapt our brains.
