Did anyone read the New Scientist article, dated 12 February 2000?
Studies on rats and some other animals have shown that the regrowth of
neurons in the hippocampus is possible, perhaps in other regions such as
the cortex.

This sounds amazing to me..  Too amazing..  In a past issue - New
Scientist also reported that Prozac had been demonstrated to assist the
growth of new neurons in the hippocampus (an area apparantly damaged by
depression).

Please email as well as posting to this group if possible..
