p>Learning switches on genes in nerve cells that stimulate growth of dendrites and synapses. Exerting your brain intellectually spurs brain cells to explode with new branches, creating millions of new synapses. Consistent mental stimulation actually builds more brain tissue. You develop a surplus of brain cells to call on should your brain run into trouble with an injury. (Carper, Jean. Your Miracle Brain. NY: HarperCollins Publishers, Inc., 2000, pp 32-34)
