The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science, Library Edition

Norman Doidge, Jim Bond, Cory Young

Fascinating. Doidge’s book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain. –Oliver Sacks The discovery that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains–even into old age–is the most important breakthrough in neuroscience in four centuries. In this revolutionary look at the brain, bestselling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they’ve transformed. Introducing principles we can all use as well as a riveting collection of case histories–stroke patients cured, a woman with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, learning and emotional disorders overcome, IQs raised, and aging brains rejuvenated–The Brain That Changes Itself has implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history (The New York Times). Readers will want to read entire sections aloud and pass the book on to someone who can benefit from it….Links scientific experimentation with personal triumph in a way that inspires awe. –The Washington Post
