The Brain That Changes Itself
Interested in Brain Science?
Have you read the best-selling book, "The Brain That Changes Itself," by renowned psychiatrist Dr. Norman Doidge? In his book, Dr. Doidge interviews Dr. Michael Merzenich, co-founder of Fast ForWord, about his early discoveries on neuroplasticity that changed the way we view neuroscience today. He also delves into the creation of Fast ForWord. If you’ve ever been interested in the history of neuroplasticity and how the brain works this is a fascinating read.
“This book was absolutely fascinating. I have always been intrigued by how the brain works and, even though I am not a "science" person, I found this book easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable.
The book is about the recent notion that the brain is "plastic," or malleable. Our brain has the ability to change - through learning, through experience, through our thoughts… children with learning disorders can strengthen the "weak" parts of their brain. The discoveries and experiments depicted in this book are changing the way we view the brain and will impact the way we live.”
