Hunting new-born neurons in the human adult brain

The hippocampus is a brain region tightly related to memory processing. This region hosts one of the most peculiar phenomena that occurs in the adult mammalian brain: the continuous generation of new neurons during a lifetime. This phenomenon is named adult hippocampal neurogenesis and is... click to read more

This resemblance is especially striking in a region called the "temporal lobe". In this part of the brain, there... click to read more
