Early Learning Helps Brain Cells Survive Longer

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
Researchers from Rutgers University say that brain cells may survive longer in brains that were subjected to early learning. The study found out that newborn brain cells survived in young mice that learned and mastered a certain task while the same brain cells in mice that did not learn the same task died quickly. The findings were recently published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience. Scientists have long kn
