'What would you think if a reputable molecular biologist claimed there is no measles virus? German scientist Dr. Stefan Lanka made such a claim and said he would award 100,000 Euros to any scientist who would successfully prove otherwise.

'Ever since Santiago Ramón y Cajal, the father of neuroscience, declared “nothing may be regenerated” in the adult brain, the idea that you can repair or regenerate damaged brain tissue was precluded by this central dogma of neuroscience. 

But compelling evidence for brain regeneration began to surface in the 1960’s with a report by MIT scientist Joseph Altman that the hippocampus of adult rats and guinea pigs and cortex of cats indeed underwent a process termed neurogenesis,1 i.e. the growth and development of nervous tissue.'
