Good news/bad news I guess. Good news if we can regenerate some of our failing brain cells (Sign me up). But bad news if new cell generation is essential to brain function. Makes uploading to an electronic version trickier. Interesting that the cell regeneration was found in an area thought to be associated with memory formation.
