The discovery that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains -- even into old age -- is the most important breakthrough in neuroscience in four centuries. In this revolutionary look at the brain, bestselling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed. Introducing principles we can all use as well as a riveting collection of case histories -- stroke patients cured, a woman with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, learning and emotional disorders overcome, Iqs raised, and aging brains rejuvenated -- The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history" (The New York Times).
