Neurogenesis is the process by which new neurons are formed in the brain. Neurogenesis is crucial when an embryo is developing, but also continues in certain brain regions after birth and throughout lifespan. The mature brain has many specialised areas of function, and neurons that differ in structure and connections. The hippocampus, for example, which is a brain region that plays an important role in memory and spatial navigation, alone has at least 122 different types of neurons.
Until a pharmaceutical solution can be proven, could mushroom nutrition act as a disease modifying therapy by nutritionally targeting neurogenesis? How?
