Norman Doidge is a Phychiatrist and researcher who has travelled the USA to meet scientists championing neuroplasticity of the brain

In the book you will discover more about:

  • the 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.

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.

AThe brain that changes itselfn 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.

This is a book written by Psychiatrist and researcher Norman Doidge, MD.  He has travelled around the United States to meet the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity, and the people whose lives they’ve transformed — people whose mental limitations or brain damage were previously seen as unalterable, and whose conditions had long been dismissed as hopeless.
