True or false: you stop making new brain cells as you age? The Doctors poll their audience and there seems to be a split in answers. For a while, it was believed that we stopped producing new brain cells, but recent research has shown that may not be true!
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra shares a study out of Columbia University, published in the journal Cell Stem Cell, that found our brains do still make new nerve cells as we age. The researchers examined 28 brains of corpses from people ages 14-79 and looked at the immature nerve cells in the hippocampus, the part of the brain which is responsible for things like memory and emotions. Even in the mature brains, there were early starts of nerve cells which means the brain is still producing these cells. They did see fewer blood vessels, however, meaning that there still may be fewer connections forming.
Psychiatrist Dr. Ish Major weighs in on the findings. While this is contrary to what was always believed, it is still important to look at fluid and connectivity. "what used to be like water shooting and firing neurons across, now is like glue and that's the problem, the connections have slowed down."
