Frederick Travis claims that 70% of our brain cells change every day (for example in this clip and in this talk). Considering that we've got a lot of brain cells, that 70% seems a lot as well.

If this is the case, what does that mean? What kind of changes are taking place? Perhaps the cells are not changing substantially? Maybe it's just proof of cells being active, but not proof of functional changes?
