“brain damage” exercise?

You are referring to a complex field but simply mental fatigue which is cause by continuous mental effort or attention for a prolong period can be due to depletion of neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones, glutamate, glucose. Most people can recover but in Alzheimer’s patients rigorous mental exercise can increase the progression of the disease. brain exercises do not damage the brain if it is not sustained for long periods(days and weeks). Sustain mental effort can affect the brain’s plasticity and shrink the neurons by prun­ing neurobranches and synap­tic con­nec­tions between individual neurons in the hippocampus.
Important note: gluccocortico steroids are release in high levels during stress and this is what trigers the pruning.
