Scientists May Have Reactivated The Gene That Causes Neurons To Stop Growing

Scientists May Have Reactivated The Gene That Causes Neurons To Stop Growing

It’s commonly believed that brain cells stop multiplying when our bodies become fully grown. Researchers from the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) theorized that our bodies have a sort of “molecular break”, that signals the neurons to stop growing when adulthood is reached. Reawakening neurons past this “break” could be key to treating diseases that cause damage to the neural network.
