No new 'learning' brain cells after age 13: study

... The finding challenges a widely-held view that the brain's hippocampus region continues to generate neurons, which transmit information through chemical and electrical signals, well into adulthood in humans, as in other mammals.

This has to be a preliminary study. Because if true, people couldn't get thru college or learn new things. Unless they are implying that much of that region is untapped memory

Or full capacity to learn new information is reached when the brain in 13 years old. Maybe that's what it means.

Is memorizing information the same thing as learning?

Maybe it means that paradigm shifts are no longer possible. How many people "believe" things they learned as kids even though they make no sense?

That is learning by rote/wrote?

You learned much as a child that didn't make sense until you got older
