What does jogging do for the brain?
« on: 30/01/2013 13:04:53 »
Can we stimulate new nerve cells to form in our brains, or are we stuck with the number that we are born with?  We discuss this and the implications with Professor Fred Gage from the Salk Institute, California.

I have always done my best thinking  while jogging although if I jog at 70 mph It promotes me to the standard of a chimp( a fast chimp). But anyways, I  like the idea we can shape our own brains by thought  and good decisions.
