SUMMARY
- During a full night’s sleep, brain cells remove toxic compounds dangerous to our brain.
- A decrease in memory, in the ability to learn, in self-control — these are the consequences that chronic stress is fraught with. 
- British scientists found out that love and hate originate in similar brain areas. 
- Our brain is almost 80% water.
- Scientists proved that pregnancy reduces the amount of gray matter in the brain areas responsible for social cognition and the ability to understand other people. 
- The abundance of fructose in the diet slows down the brain and reduces its ability to learn, remember information, and concentrate. 
- According to brain activity, romantic relationships and maternal feelings are very similar, but there are differences as well.
- A study showed that painting and contemplation of works of art improve the interaction between brain areas while slowing its aging.
- Oxford scientists proved that the process of reading trains the cognitive abilities of the brain. It also activates areas that aren’t used at other times.
