Brain cells, damaged for whatever reasons, do not regenerate. However, the brain has the capacity to re-route its neural networks to make up for lost functions if the damage is not too severe.

Most alcoholics who get into recovery early and stick with it do eventually regain most of their mental function. Beyond a certain point, however, irreversible brain damage (known as "wet brain") occurs, and full functioning can never be regained.

Do your brain cells grow back?

While some stem cells have been found to become nerve cells in the spinal cord, there has been no evidence that these cells can be found in the brain. In effect, no nerve cells grow back, though some may be replaced. However, the brain has been found to be less "hard-wired" and more "plastic" in nature than thought years ago. This means that stroke patients may undergo successful rehabilitation by the retraining of other parts of the brain to assume control of activities lost in the original damaged portions.
