This book is about the discovery that the human brain has its own unique way of healing. For centuries we believed that the price we paid for our brain’s complexity was that, compared to other organs, it was fixed and unregenerative, unable to recover from damage or illness. In this revolutionary new book, Norman Doidge turns this belief on its head. The phenomenon of neuroplasticity, the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience, is the most important development in our understanding of the brain and mind since the beginning of modern science.
