Dr. Sanjay Gupta was recently talking to Deepak Chopra about how to turn your brain into a super brain.
There are ways for the brain to heal and change itself.
He was talking about neuroplasticity and how it can lead a person to regain control of one side of their body that was originally paralyzed in a stroke.
The brain is able to build new neural pathways to allow us to function normally, even after serious trauma.
Through lifestyle changes, we can even begin to turn certain genes on and off!
You could disable genes that lead to cancer while enabling genes that rev up your metabolism!
Check out the video (above) to hear some very smart guys talk about how to get a super brain!

This is just a disaster.
Massachusetts pet food manufacturer, WellPet, has recalled its Wellness Dog Food brand due to high moisture levels.
Unfortunately, all of the WellPet websites (it also makes Holistic Select, Eagle Pack and Old Mother Hubbard) are down due to Hurricane Sandy so consumers cannot get more facts on the situation.
The website servers are based in New Jersey, a state hit with billions of dollars worth of damage.
The sites may be up today but the company is fielding phone calls as well.

We're always so disheartened to see celebs we really like firing up a cigarette.
It's like… we wish they respected their health more, you know??
Though, apparently that's not the weirdest thing to be happening on set for her new music video at the Roosevelt Hotel. We're hearing that beau Liam Hemsworth was also there last night … with a goat.
Don't ask us! We're just as confused! LOLz!
Miley, we hope you don't smoke in that new ride of yours — the resell value would go right OUT the window!
