Experts from the Massachusetts Institute of technology set: the human brain in the learning process rebuilds and breaks. The mechanism of memorizing new information was similar to the processes of degeneration, writes The Statesman.
For the assimilation of new information, the neurons of the brain are destroying their genetic material and then proceed to fix it. This principle underlies the entire training process. In childhood, the cells break bonds and form new ones quickly and easily, over the years, the speed and quality of connections drops.
That is why the Alzheimer's and memory problems, to develop mainly in older people.
