Molecule key to functional brain rejuvenation identified

Recent studies suggest that new brain cells are being formed every day in response to injury, physical exercise and mental stimulation. Glial cells, and in particular the ones called oligodendrocyte progenitors, are highly responsive to external signals and injuries and can detect changes in the nervous system and form new myelin, which wraps around nerves and provides metabolic support and accurate transmission of electrical signals.
