One of the most interesting bits of research that I have come across lately comes from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The paper is entitled, Running Enhances Neurogenesis, Learning, and Long-term Potentiation. You may be like me. I was taught that once brain cells die, they’re gone. We know now that brain cells can regenerate, a process called neurogenesis. What is interesting is that running causes this to take place in a part of the brain responsible for long-term learning. How cool is that? Your brain can become more efficient by running.
