Since I am giving a speech today in Portland on neurogenesis and neuroplasticity and how we can enhance these modalities with natural medicine, I have to talk about how AMAZING the brain is!
Did you know that the brain has 2 regions that are able to repair itself which includes the hippocampus (related to long term memory) and the olfactory bulb (related to our sense of smell).
Did you know that the theory of localization has actually been disproven and that the brain can adapt when deficits occur.
I am a huge fan of Ashwagandha because it has been proven to significantly extend the length of dendrites and axons in human cells. This can translate into faster learning and enhanced memory.
