GOULD, Elizabeth

Abstract:The article discusses the research conducted by psychology professor Elizabeth Gould and her team at Princeton University who observed marmosets and demonstrated that the primate brain is always creating new neurons. The team went on to prove that the structure of the primates' brain is incredibly influenced by their surroundings. The findings suggest that in situations of chronic stress the production of neurons stops and the brain suffers in the absence of new neural pathways.
