My question is in regard to the capacity of the brain. Have any studies been organized to demonstrate that the brain eventually loses its ability to retain knowledge because it has reached a limit? Does the brain ever lose information? Or are we unable to recall that particular piece of information, and label it as ‘forgotten?’ I ask these questions because I routinely listen to music and am concerned about unnecessarily occupying brain space. Should I be concerned about this? I have a collection of approximately 250 songs that I listen to while in attendance of my computer (more often then not, this is where I am). And finally: can the brain generate additional brain cells? Can this be promoted or be forced? Thanks much for all your efforts at answering my questions.
