Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: New neurons form in the brain into tenth decade of life, even in people with Alzheimer’s

(University of Illinois at Chicago) Researchers examining post-mortem brain tissue from people ages 79 to 99 found that new neurons continue to form well into old age. The study provides evidence that this occurs even in people with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease, although neurogenesis is significantly reduced in these people compared to older adults with normal cognitive functioning.
