The School of Life special event: Norman Doidge On Neuroplasticity

Author:

I have a soft spot for Norman Doidge!

I associate his book, The Brain That Changes Itself, with my second biggest turning point (I’ve had a few if you want to read about them: turning point 1, 2, 3…)

You can hear Norman Doidge speak about his latest book, The Brain’s Way of Healing thanks to the fabulous School of Life. Here are all the details:

We know that our minds and bodies are intricately connected, but can changing our minds improve our health?

Dr Norman Doidge is a Toronto-based psychiatrist and author of the international best-seller The Brain That Changes Itself. His work explores how the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience – known as neuroplasticity — a discovery that has drastically changed our understanding of the brain and the mind.

In his new book, The Brain’s Way of Healing (Scribe Publications), Norman examines the human brain’s unique way of healing. He turns on its head the century-old belief that our brains are fixed and unregenerative – unable to recover from damage or illness. The book tells optimistic stories about the way people have alleviated years of chronic pain; those living on the autism spectrum have improved their lives; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and brain injuries have diminished, and how we may lower our risk of dementia.

The full post is for some reason unavailable. Sorry folks!
