Neurogenesis: You Can Grow More Brain Cells.

In this Ted Talk, Neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret says we can, and offers research and practical advice on how we can help our brains better perform neurogenesis to improve mood, increase memory formation and prevent the decline associated with aging as well.

1. Rest/Relaxation/ Sleep/ Meditation

2. Sex

3. Diet

4. Exercise

All activate neurogenesis to improve mood and memory.

There is evidence that  meditation  shrinks neurons on the hippocampus, a part of the brain involved in learning capacity, memory, and positive mood. The self-healing hippocampus has the ability to regenerate, if stress is discontinued. And healing meditation reduces stress, as shown in Dr. Davidson's research.
