As one might expect, the process of neurogenesis is controlled by our DNA.
Gould is a pioneer in the study of "neurogenesis" -- that is, the birth of new brain cells, or neurons, in the adult brain.
Neuroscientists shunned the idea of neurogenesis until the end of the 20th century.
A study published in Nature Neuroscience examined the effects of running on creating new neurons a process known as neurogenesis in the brains of adult rats housed in groups versus those kept in isolation.
Exercise also drives the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor BDNF, which promotes the birth of new, baby neurons, a process called neurogenesis.
Before the advent of real-time brain scans, scientists believed that the process of cell division that creates new brain cells, called neurogenesis, slows down early in life and stops altogether by the time we are into adolescence.
What you may not know is that new research is showing that exercise beneficially affects your genes, helps reverse the aging process at a cellular level, gives you more energy, makes you smarter, and may even help you grow so many new brain cells a process called neurogenesis that your brain actually gets bigger.

Neuroscientists' understanding of the plasticity, or flexibility, of the brain called neurogenesis supports the idea that many of these brain differences are not fixed.
Research in rodents shows the growth of new neurons, also known as neurogenesis, lessens the severity of stroke and dramatically improves function following a stroke.
