One article is old, the other just published yesterday – but they both support the belief that our brains can heal. You just need to stay active.

The newer article, What Parkinson’s Teaches Us About the Brain, is particularly interesting to me.

The doctor who is part of the research study is hopeful that this information will help patients with other brain-related diseases… and of course I immediately think “MS!”

Check them out. Both articles are a quick read:
