On this page I am going to continue to up date any new items that deal with adult neurogenesis, because, I believe the failure to proliferate enough hippocampus adult neurogenesis is the proximate cause of schizophrenia.

something new every month

July 2018 :-
hippocampal neurogenesis in the rat protects from brain oversaturation of longterm memories

helping resilience to stress

"We found that chemogenetic inhibition of adult-born neurons in the vDG promotes susceptibility to social defeat stress, whereas increasing neurogenesis confers resilience to chronic stress."

Apri 2018 :- 1.

In a letter to the Nature journal meaning - in this case - important news that can't wait for the full article.
