THE BRAIN THAT CHANGES ITSELF: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science
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
