Quote from: mwilley on June 02, 2012, 07:24:59 PMDid anyone notice an edit when Steve was talking about Scientology. It's as if he was going to say something criticising the church, but then there was a blip and a jump cut and he was talking about something else.Is there something going on that we, the listeners, don't know about? Have the lawyers gotten to the SGU?

We may be able to continuously regenerate skin cells, but we can't grow a new brain since we must maintain existing neuronal relationships in order to preserve memory and who we are. Brain growth must begin early, then stabilize as maturity is reached. At that point we have a lifetime reserve of brain cells that, in case of injury or disease, neuronal redundancy serves to mitigate the damage.
