Turning over

"..., the entirety of the functional
components of your whole CNS have
been broken down and resynthesized over
a 2-month time span. This should scare you.
Your apparent stability as an individual is a
perceptual illusion."
"Development puts everything in its right place, but maintaining that
anatomical structure is an active process,
and the component molecules are turning
over with surprising rapidity."

J.David Sweatt
