Adult neurogenesis- (growth and development of nervous tissue) The process of generating new functional neurons which integrate into existing brain circuitry. For more than 100 years it was assumed that neurogenesis, occurs only during embryonic brain development. Adult neurogenesis happens only in the denature gyrus of the hippocampus. Cell type in the denature gyrus are called granule cells. Helping us to differentiate between similar events and objects and locations. Remembering what birthday, you got a laptop as a gift from your parents. Adult neurogenesis: initially have the dendrites, and then the axons will start to show up at 2 weeks, and they will receive information through their cortical area, New neurons are important for hippocampal learning and memory. Neurogenesis has been influenced by many factors such as hormones, Those who have seizures: have a lot of new neurons. All of the above increase new neurons and neurogenesis in the hippocampus.
