I’ve posted articles about Dr. Norman Doidge’s work several times. Here is a video with him talking about how even a damaged brain can grow, heal and repair itself. His work and other similar work helps me have faith that my brain, too, will heal.
This is a repost. First posted a bit over a year ago.
Below is a quotation from the youtube channel:
In this Melbourne Conversations event, Dr Norman Doidge, author of bestselling book The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science discusses his research and relays strange and fascinating stories of the workings of the brain.
The discovery of neuroplasticity, that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains, even into old age, is the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in four hundred years. Dr. Norman Doidge introduces principles we can all use to overcome brain limitations and explores the profound brain implications of the changing brain in an immensely moving book that will permanently alter the way we look at human possibility and human nature.
