In this Ted Talk, Neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret says we can, and offers research and practical advice on how we can help our brains better perform neurogenesis to improve mood, increase memory formation and prevent the decline associated with aging as well.

She takes us on a tour of the Hippocampus that is responsible for mood and memory, explores the relationship between depression and neurogenesis, and most importantly shares a list of activities that we can do to increase neurogenesis and things we should avoid that reduce neurogenesis.

Here are the things Thuret claims increase neurogenesis:

  1. Learning
  2. Sex
  3. Running
  4. Healthy diet

And here are the things she says decrease neurogenesis:

  1. Stress
  2. Sleep deprivation
  3. Aging
  4. Unhealthy diet
