One thought on “Seven things that cause new brain cells

  1. As far as I know, throughout your life, no new brain cells are created, basically around 42 / 43 days after you’ve conceived, all the brain cells are created, and after that, no new brain cells are created. It seems to be that these things act by reducing the speed of loosing brain cells .
