Active Rain = Active Brain

active rain = active brain
 

Hey you addicts, listen to this, you can justify the time you spend here on ActiveRain!

Did you read the November National Geographic magazine?  The story about MEMORY, and how brains work?  Fernando Nottebohm is a leading scientist who discovered that canaries generate new neurons to replace lost brain cells.  One of the ways they do this is by meeting new social partners.  Other researchers have confirmed that humans can also make new brain neural connections.  Well you don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize that social networking will help to increase your brain cells.  So blog away

 

brain coralprofessor russell Scientific tests have proven the connection between new social contacts and the increase in brain cells!  As we click on members names and read their profiles, see their pictures, and make connections, our brains are also "making connections" in order to store all that new information.  Therefore, continue to exercise and stretch your brains.

Thanks for sharing an interesting article. I'm glad you didn't compare canaries with us and say that we are becoming bird-brained!
