That the brain grows new cells, how it does it, and in what circumstances–that’s the topic of this piece at Seed Magazine, surveying the work of a number of neuroscientists. I found it really positive to read something so utterly focussed on the science, yet engaging and enthusiastic.

I really loathe the mainstream journalistic need for “the alternative perspective” that more often than not futzes the issue. This avoids that methodological trope.
