13. Which of the following statements is true about our current scientific understanding of the brain?
- We’re born with a set number of neurons–no new neurons can be born in our brains after infancy.
- As we get older our brains only deteriorate and there’s nothing we can do about it.
- An enriched environment (surrounding ourselves with creative, supportive people) strengthens the synapses in our brains.
- Isolating ourselves and focusing completely on our studies is the only path to success.
