Description
An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., 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.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Using a combination of experimental results, disease studies, and anecdotal information, the author explains how the human brain can change. Every section advances Dr. Doidge's case for the existence of what he terms "brain elasticity." He cites practical applications for the treatment of autism, stroke, and memory loss. Narrator Jim Bond easily handles the formidable scientific vocabulary of anatomical and biochemical names like "hippocampus," "dopamine receptors," and "localizationists." He renders them into a conversational manner that lightens the heavy load of ponderous detail and psychoanalytical theory. His slow pace and measured diction allow plenty of time for maximum comprehension and absorption. Advanced scientific readers interested in physiological psychology will especially benefit from this challenging disquisition. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
