You are what you eat, and your brain reflects what you’ve taught it. It shouldn’t be too surprising that our brains change based on what we do with them. There’s some interesting science behind why you never forget how to ride a bike, and here are a few more examples of lessons our brains seem to keep forever.

If you’d like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
