Life experience can affect the structure of the brain.
To such conclusion scientists from the University of Guelph.
They believe that everything experienced by a person affects the structure of his brain.
The researchers conducted an experiment in which volunteers were asked to consider familiar and unfamiliar objects.
It turned out that, seeing familiar and unfamiliar images, the brain functions differently.
According to experts, it explains the specific neural circuits that are involved in the recognition of objects.
This suggests that the experience directly affects the brain, scientists say.
