The Brain That Changes Itself could signal an important medical shift we're in the midst of right now. Forget mechanics: the brain is not a machine, nor is it a computer made of meat. This book is a wonderful and engaging way of re-imagining what kind of creatures we are. But Norman Doidge's fascinating synopsis of the current revolution in neuroscience straddles this gap: the age-old distinction between the brain and the mind is crumbling fast as 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.
When your brain is damaged, another part of the brain rewires itself and takes over the same function, making it possible for you to resume normalcy in your life. It is nothing short of miraculous. Readers will want to read entire sections aloud and pass the book on to someone who can benefit from it. This is an enjoyable read, an impressive translation of neuroscience for a lay audience.
It will interest anyone who wants to know more about how the brain works. Doidge, an eminent psychiatrist and researcher, was struck by how his patients' own transformations belied this and set out to explore the new science of neuroplasticity by interviewing both scientific pioneers in neuroscience, and patients who have benefited from neuro-rehabilitation. Here he describes in fascinating personal narratives how the brain, far from being fixed, has remarkable powers of changing its own structure and compensating for even the most challenging neurological conditions.
Doidge's book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain. Help Centre.europeschool.com.ua/profiles/vifiliv/serie-chica-con-tatuajes.php
