A new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychoanalyst Doidge 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 stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.--From publisher description.… (mais)

Amazing book that really forces you to recognize the incredible opportunity we all have to shape the wiring in our own brains, as well as those around us. Hard to really take in the implications this new science can and will have on psychology and brain science moving forward. ( )

Book. RLS library gives away lots of books for political education. This book is missing a description. Write a description of about 150 words and you can take it or a random book home. OR, you can exchange 2 books for 3 random books of ours. ( )

Well, this will make you think....

This book is based on the author's experience, learning, understanding, research and pioneering that followed on from restoring normal life to his father after he had suffered a debilitating stroke.

He shifted that idea that this specific bit of our brain controls just this specific bit of our body or behaviour and instead revealed that it is both true and not true or maybe better said as true but not fixed.

He broke new ground in stroke treatment, for sure, but also broke new ground in how strokes are thought about both by medical and lay people.

I am so glad I read when I did because shortly afterwards I had a stroke!

I kid you not.

As an experience it was terrifying in ways that words cannot convey. But where this book came into my experience was that I knew that whatever loss I suffered in that stroke would probably not be permanent, which was what I had always assumed would be the case.

Being told that you have suffered a serious stroke is not the best news you can get but slowly getting back what you thought might be gone forever more than makes up for it. Knowing that recovery is both possible and likely really helps.

This was only a few months ago but today you'd never know that anything had happened to me. From the outside I look, move and talk like I always did. Inside I've lost a chunk of my vision and I may not drive again but things could have been much worse.

There's an old saying that goes, "Old people are not afraid to die, only of what may happen to them beforehand". If you have ageing parents, recommend they read this book, it not only takes a lot of the fear out of strokes but gives a realistic and positive view of the possible outcomes. ( )

I believe neuroplasticity is currently my favourite word. ( )
