The Power of Thought: Dr. Norman Doidge and the Brain That Changes Itself

Norman-DoidgeIs the brain a hard-wired machine that cannot self-repair once you pass a certain age or stage of development?! Can the mind alter the brain?! Does the mind span beyond the bran as a lot more distributed, rather than localized process?!

Dr. Norman Doidge believes the way we traditionally think about brains is wrong and that the human brain possesses incredible amounts of neuroplasticity which allow both for repair and rewiring. Neuroplasticity is a recently discovered phenomenon according to which our brains can change both their function and structure through mental experience alone. Futhermore, Dr. Doidge claims that more related research could unlock innovative treatments to serious disorders such as Parkinson’s, ADHD and autism.
