    Description

    An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, MD, traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformed - people whose mental limitations or brain damage were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. 

    Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.

    Commentaires

    "The power of positive thinking finally gains scientific credibility. Mind-bending, miracle-making, reality-busting stuff...with implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history." (The New York Times)

    "Brilliant.... Doidge has identified a tidal shift in basic science....The implications are monumental." (The London Times)

    "Fascinating. Doidge's book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain." (Oliver Sacks, MD)

    Enlightening and Encouraging

    This is a wonderful and informative book about Nero-Plasticity. The history of the conflict of accepting this idea on the Fields of Psychology and Neurology. I will admit that some of the Topics extrapolated are way above my understanding but overall a great Listen. I definitely plan on giving this a another listen once some time has passed. I highly recommend.

    Excellent book

    I loved this book. Norman Doidge wrote about the plastic brain and many of the scientists and patients who worked to no only understand the brain and its plasticity, but also to help those who may most benefit and gain (or re-gain) sensory input from their brain rewiring itself.
    Jim Bond’s performance was also great. His inflections and usage is posted due f
