By Norman Doidge
With advances in brain sciences and research, there’s now compelling scientific evidence that our brain can change itself, a phenomenon called “neuroplasticity”. In this book, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Norman Doidge provides a comprehensive review of neuroplasticity through a range of stories from scientists, doctors, and patients who have had first-hand experience with neuroplasticity. By incorporating scientific facts into narratives, Doidge makes it easy to understand how the brain works, when/how plasticity occurs, and how neuroplasticity can be used to treat diseases/disabilities, prevent aging, enhance learning and even influence social change.
In this summary, you’ll learn:
• How doctors, scientists and researchers use research and experiments to unravel the mysteries of the human brain;
• How neuroplasticity works, and how it can affect learning, habit formation, diseases, disabilities, cognitive decline, sexual attraction, or even change your genes.
• The latest discoveries in neurosciences that have allowed people to overcome learning disabilities, unhealthy obsessions, physical and mental disabilities, and preserve their mental capabilities with age.
Who should read this:
• Teachers, educators, parents, doctors, therapists, psychologists
• Anyone wants to learn about the human body, health and brain potential
