↑ Dr. Brant Cortright’s talk at Google lays out how to powerfully enhance cognitive function by increasing neurogenesis—the process of making new brain cells.
New discoveries in neuroscience reveal that your rate of neurogenesis is the most important bio-marker of brain health you’ve never heard of. Low rates of neurogenesis are associated with cognitive decline, memory problems, stress, anxiety and depression. High rates of neurogenesis are associated with cognitive enhancement, memory improvement, and protection from stress and depression. Most people live in the middle, with adequate but suboptimal brain function.
