Aged brains can rewires itself

March 12th, 2009

Aged brains lose their ability to reorganize connections between nerve cells.  It was is a part of common knowledge for a long time. We all think what once you get old you can forget about  studying new language, new technology, new pov.You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  But nature is a tricky thing. It always has something to surprise use.  Put some efforts to science, do some study and here it is.

Until now, it was thought that such reorganization is restricted to small numbers of connections within discrete areas of the brain. But new research published yesterday in the journal Current Biology now provides the first evidence that local modifications to small numbers of connections can induce global changes in brain connectivity.
