Brain Cells

From making you more forgetful to increasing your risk of dementia, here are 12 things that chronic stress does to your brain

Every day, people encounter things that stress them out, whether it be school, work, or even other people.

Grow New Brain Cells – A New Alzheimer’s Treatment?

First, here’s a photo from Athens. This is the view Vivien and I enjoyed from our hotel suite, overlooking the floodlit Acropolis. We left the blinds open and went to sleep with this inspiring sight!

Yes, You Can Grow New Brain Cells

We all remember the daft times when “science” (that word sticks in my throat these days) told us that we could not regrow brain cells. We had just so many and when those were gone… bang! Senility!


The glymphatic system - How insomnia leads to a filthy mind

By Sinclair:(NaturalNews) Throughout the day our blood circulates in our bodies carrying oxygen and nutrients to every cell. Waste from the cells' metabolic processes is released into interstitial fluid (the fluid between each cell). The lymphatic system sucks up excessive fluid and the waste, incorporating it into the lymphatic fluid that flows through the lymph nodes to filter the waste and pathogens before dumping the fluid back into the circulatory system.

Copper toxicity damages mitochondria of brain cells through oxidative, nitrosative stress

Scientists have linked copper to the development of numerous brain disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, prion conditions such as mad cow disease, and Wilson's disease. Although it remains unclear exactly what role copper plays in such brain damage, at least one study suggests that the mineral's oxidative properties may be partly to blame.

Human brain cells developed in lab, grow in mice

A key type of human brain cell developed in the laboratory grows seamlessly when transplanted into the brains of mice, UC San Francisco researchers have discovered, raising hope that these cells might one day be used to treat people with Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and possibly even Alzheimer's disease, as well as and complications of spinal cord injury such as chronic pain and spasticity.
