Study of rats brains indicates brain continues to grow after puberty

ut at a slower pace than myelin-covered axons. If axons later lose their myelin sheaths, communication is disrupted. A breakdown of myelin is associated with demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis as well as many other metabolic and inflammatory disorders.

"The majority of work in humans is done with MRI [magnetic resonance imaging]," said Joseph L. Nunez, a doctoral student in the neuroscience program. "We, however, were able to look at the splenium and fibers within it, which cannot be done in humans. Human work has suggested that structural changes later in life within the brain involve language acquisition, but we are seeing changes in a primary sensory region. How this relates to the rest of the corpus callosum, we don't know."
