I'm not aware of any method available with current technology that will increase your gray matter. Remain as active you can be, exercise and get physical therpay to make the most of what you have for as long as you can.

Can you please explain blurring between gray and white matter in the brain?

Blurring

Brain
Bluring relates to the brain image on CAT scan or MRI. It is usually caused by edema (swelling) or damage, causing an accumulation of fluid in the area, so the the gray matter, where nerve cell bodies are located. The white matter contains the nerve fibers that travel throughout the brain.

Can underdevoloped gray matter in the brain cause memory, speech, and thought process issues?

Can lose cells

Meninges
Underdevelopment of the gray matter is something your born with and symptoms of what would be perceived as mental retardation at that age. . When it is acquired later in life, it is usually due to a degenerative process such as alzheimer's or other dementias.

We just found out our 7 year old daughter has underdeveloped gray matter in her brain. Is this perminant or is it something that can be improved?

Exercise brain

Head-brain
Children's brains are extremely adaptable and very frequently if one part of brain injured or deficient, other parts of brain can be trained to do that task, espeically in kids. Thus, she may never get "more" gray matter, but you can totally expand the capabilites of the gray matter she does have! You have to train it like athletes train muscles, though, so start working on areas she has needs!

How do you naturally increase dopamine levels in the brain?

Dopamine production

Blood
There is no proven way to increase dopamine. Ingested dopamine is broken down in the stomach and small intesting (unless combined with a special medication...carbidopa, for example in the medicine given to Parkinson's patients carbidopa/levodopa). It can be given intravenously, which is done sometimes to help increase blood pressure. See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dopamine

What's the most effective way to increase dopamine activity in the brain?

Chemically or natura

Open-uri20121112-31834-i0h3dj
Thrilling behavior, ie. skydiving, will do it. Gambling will for some, unfortunately do it. Risky, edgy behaviour does it. /c/hemically, drugs to treat Parkinson's will increase central dopamine, as will buproprion-a stimulating anti-depressant. Other drugs that treat high prolactins will do it as well, although some treat Parkinson's.

Dr. James Henning answered:

Can flumazenil or ketamine increase tyrosine hydroxylase in the brain 10 points?

Ketamine Does..

Open-uri20130622-9048-1921u4t
Conversion of tyrosine to dopamine is initiated (in part) by tyrosine hydroxylase (TH). Long-term abuse of ketamine has been shown to cause "up regulation" and, therefore, increased production of, TH as the reason for "delayed but persistent" INCREASE in the neurotransmitter dopamine, a possible reason for "altered mental status" in those who abuse ketamine....Hmmm not sure about flumazenil!
