On 5 April 2018 The Guardian reported:
Humans continue to produce new neurons in a part of their brain involved in learning, memory and emotion throughout adulthood, scientists have revealed, countering previous theories that production stopped after adolescence. Many new neurons are produced in the hippocampus in babies, but it has been a matter of hot debate whether this continues into adulthood -- and if so, whether this rate drops with age as seen in mice and nonhuman primates. Now [a] group of scientists have published research ... revealing the new neurons are produced in this brain region in human adults and does not drop off with age.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and health, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
'The exciting part is that the neurons are there throughout a lifetime,' said Dr Maura Boldrini from Columbia University in New York and first author of the new study published in the journal Cell Stem Cell . 'It seems that indeed humans are different from mice -- where [neuron production] goes down with age really fast -- and this could mean that we need these neurons for our complex learning abilities and cognitive behavioural responses to emotions,' she said.
