Discussion Directions: After reviewing the reading materials for the week and viewing our TedTalk on neurogenesis, what are your thoughts on the concepts presented by the speaker? What do you presently do that fosters neurogenesis for you? What are some things you or your loved ones might have to change to increased the rate at which neurogenesis takes place for you?
