Alan BOARD asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi, Over thirty years ago I was the slower driver in a head-on collision with a car being driven on my side of the road at night by a drunk driver who had neglected to put her headlights on.  From the point of impact my car was pushed backwards.
As you might imagine my head...  I was always convinced neurogenesis was a possibility (at the time it was dismissed outright) and now, providing one takes much of what is written on the Internet with a pinch of salt, opinion is changing. Over time I like to think I have become something of an expert on how the brain (well, mine at least) works and am fairly convinced neurogenesis is possible in numerous areas of the brain and not just the VTA etc as is presently believed


What do you think?

Yes, neurogenesis can happens in multiple areas of the brain, including the hippocampus, striatum, and prefrontal cortex.
