Specific gene linked to adult growth of brain cells, learning, memory

Stimulating a specific gene could prompt growth ? in adults ? of new neurons in this critical region, leading to faster learning and better memories, researchers report. Understanding the link between this gene and the growth of new neurons ? or neurogenesis ? is an important step in developing therapies to address impaired learning and memory associated with neurodegenerative diseases and aging.
