Is it true you brain grows every minuite. Nuerons.

Posted by rjlockhart on March 31, 2006, at 22:57:30

Im talking dentries, like the nerve branches in the brain that the more you learn the more dentries you have, i have read that amphetamines increase dentries, which maybe is why they are precribed as adderall to learn to ADD.

Anyone? every though you have does your mind grow?

I thought that at least the previous theories of ADD/ADHD, especially in children were to fight fire with fire literally.

But as to brain growth, we don't fully know the extent of things as it has been shown it is theoretically possible for the brain now to regenerate cells, or use other parts of the brain for previous tasks.

We're all young at heart :).. As they say, and there are studies that back it, if you dont use it, you lose it. People who go back to work or do something productive with the mind and body after retiring, can live longer, and live richer. Perhaps a bit simplified, but that's generally true.
