Overview

Our brains are amazing. Your brain contains your memories, brings emotions and sensations to your body, controls your movements, and allows you to think and make decisions.

We are now learning more about neuroplasticity, or the brain's ability to change. Previously, scientists thought that the brain was fixed when fully formed and deteriorated with age. But with the rise of the concept of neuroplasticity, we now know our brains can heal themselves from injury, change from experience, and regenerate even into old age.

Author Norman Doidge is a world-renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst whose work is recognized as one of the most important in his field. In The Brain That Changes Itself, he sets out to investigate neuroplasticity from a human and scientific perspective. Through exploring the resilience of humans, he unravels the secrets of the brain to show us how we can use ours to change our reality and improve our life.
