Are you saying that a brain cell is immortal through one’s life?

"New neurons are made in just two parts of the brain—the hippocampus, involved in memory and navigation, and the olfactory bulb, involved in smell (and even then only until 18 months of age). Aside from that, your neurons are as old as you are and will last you for the rest of your life. They don’t divide, and there’s no turnover."


Yea some of them are. Obviously not every cell in the brain, but some types are not replaced.
