People lose brain cells every day and eventually just run out.

Fact

Actually, most regions of the brain do not lose brain cells as you age. And while you may lose some nerve connections, this is not necessarily a bad thing. It can be part of the reshaping of the brain that occurs with experience. It's also possible that you can even grow new brain cells and create new connections, or prevent the ones you have from withering, if you exercise your brain.
