Has this been up yet?

I guess the same is probably true of spinning?
Does it make your hair grow into dreds?
Is it the same for spinning?
What if you take mind expanding drugs at the same time - will your brain come out your ears?
Can I juggle instead of going to the gym and doing detox?
What if they had 5 balls?
Will 7 balls turn me into an evil genius?

Posted:yes (but it was not from such a lovely source as the bbc - the actual study is published in this month's nature).

yes (but only if you keep learning new stuff).
no.
yes (still).
if you take enough, yes.
yes. but you won't any fitter or healthier.
then they would just not use two of them for a while.
only if you can juggle them blind whilst cackling loudly - you would then be worthy of the name 'jugglor the deceptive'.

Posted:yeah, someone beat you to it.

mind you though that the study doesn't actually say your brain gets bigger (the media articles are not well worded). what the study showed is that your brain reallocates other parts of you gray matter to the problem of visual processing. thus the amount of your brain dedicated this process increases, but the actual size and volume and amount of gray matter in your skull stays the same.

basically the proper conclusion is that your brain adjusts how much processing power to put towards what tasks based on long term demand.

Posted:So does that mean that if you learn something, and if you get to a point where grey matter kinda stops increasing, it's generally at the expense of forgetting how to do something else? hmmm...interesting

That depends if you can fulfil the other prerequisites.
Do you have a furry white cat and black swivel chair?


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
