Making New Connections: How the Brain Can Develop Into Adulthood - Alice G. Walton - Life A multi-year study has found that the brain's white matter -- fibers connecting cells -- can shift with employment, education, and relationships For many years, the convention was that after adolescence, the brain had done about as much developing as it was going to do. Recent research has changed that notion, however, with studies finding that the brain can actually grow new neurons in certain areas. Now, a group reports that the fiber tracks connecting brain cell to brain cell (the white matter of the brain) may also continue to develop into early adulthood. The team of researchers scanned participants' brains using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at two time points or more.
