In The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge, M.D. 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.
In his new book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, Dr. Doidge shows the astonishing advances of neuroplasticity being used to improve, and even cure, many prevalent brain problems previously thought to be incurable or irreversible. Doidge describes a series of remarkable recoveries using natural, non-invasive techniques for the treatment of autism, learning disorders and attention deficit in children as well as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s. Finally, he reveals simple methods proven to reduce the risk of dementia by 60%. Using moving human stories to present cutting-edge science, Doidge illustrates the principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain’s performance and health.
