The bestselling author of"The Brain That Changes Itself "presents astoundingadvances in the treatment of brain injury and illness

Winner of the 2015 Gold Nautilus Award in Science & Cosmology
In "The Brain That Changes Itself," Norman Doidge described the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in four hundred years: the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience what we call neuroplasticity.
His revolutionary new book shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us light, sound, vibration, movement which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain s own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes or accidents; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson s disease, and cerebral palsy radically improved, and other near-miracle recoveries. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia with simple approaches anyone can use.
For centuries it was believed that the brain s complexity prevented recovery from damage or disease. "The Brain s Way of Healing" shows that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. As he did so lucidly in "The Brain That Changes Itself," Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain s performance and health."

"An exciting overview of powerful new neuroscience theories that connect mind, body, and soul . . . A Michelin Guide to this hopeful new trove of knowledge and insight." --"Boston Globe " "Doidge explains the processes of the brain and body in a clear and understandable way, even to those of us who previously couldn't distinguish a hippocampus from a hippopotamus. He tells of patients who hobble into labs and medical offices on canes and leave without them after their first visit. . . . For someone who suffers -- or knows someone who suffers -- from an injury or illness related to the brain, both this book as well as Doidge's previous [book] will provide information -- and perhaps hope -- that the brain can heal itself."" --"Seattle Times" ""Norman Doidge, M.D. marches enthusiastically into the future in a dazzling collection of stories about neuroplasticity and the ever-changing brain. . . . Each of Doidge's examples suggests tangible treatment ideas for patients who may have thought they were out of options. Doidge's penchant for considering unconventional approaches to healing offers hope for all." " --"Bookpage " " "A lively, anecdotal account of potential new directions that may point the way to major therapeutic breakthroughs."" --"Kirkus Reviews" ""Everyone who has a brain could benefit from reading Doidge's book."" --"The Columbus Dispatch" "
