“It just blew my mind, the fact that a cell could create an idea,” Diamond stated in a recent interview, reflecting on the person 1st encounter with that sinewy purple-tinged mass.

She didn’t know that this was the start of a wellknown legacy that would stretch for decades, touching millions. But today, she’d be one of the 1st to scientifically equate that adolescent thrill with the person life’s work.

Because she helped prove a link.

Brains, we now know, thanks in big part to research by Diamond, thrive on challenge, newness, discovery. With this enrichment, brain cells are stimulated and grow.

Article length: About 680 words.
