Deep in the young rat brain, a seahorse-shaped structure churns out thousands of new cells destined to die just weeks later. But these new cells can escape death if the brain is kept busy learning a task, scientists report April 23 in Frontiers in Neuroscience.
The results show just how sensitive the young brain is to experience, says study coauthor Tracey Shors of Rutgers University in Piscataway, N.J. The surviving cells might help the fledgling animal learn how to survive on its own, she proposes. (1)
How delicate dogmatism can be.
Just saying something about the brain.
Just saying something about some cells.
Without explaining anything, just implying that all these are connected with “mind”.
Materialism at its best…
