The Brain That Changes Itself; Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science

Share Article

These lectures offer a great opportunity to listen to Norman Doidge a world class expert on learning and brain development. His Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science inspire and enlighten.

The discovery that our thoughts and experience can change the structure and the function of our brains - even in to old age - is the most important breakthrough in four centuries of our understanding of the way the human brain functions. Rather than being 'hardwired' or 'mechanical', as was previously thought, the brain is actually far more malleable - scientists have discovered if certain "parts" of the brain fail, then other parts could sometimes take over. In his revolutionary book, THE BRAIN THAT CHANGES ITSELF, bestselling author Norman Doidge introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity - and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they have transformed.

"The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge shows us that at last neuroscience has caught up with what mystics and meditation have taught for centuries -- the brain is ...changeable. 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.    JEANETTE WINTERSON, The Guardian
