Stories of personal triumph from the frontiers of brain science.
An astonishing new scientific discovery called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the adult human brain is fixed and unchanging. It is, instead, able to change its own structure and function, even into old age.
In this revolutionary look at the brain, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., provides an introduction to both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformed. From stroke patients learning to speak again to the remarkable case of a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, The Brain That Changes Itself will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.
The information in the book is truly life changing. Almost as importantly Otis easy to listen to and absorb. A vey important book.
This has changed the way I look at myself, those around me, and my life as a whole.
An amazing read! Very very interesting information kept me interested from beginning to end!
