The Brain That Changes Itself
What is neuroplasticity? Is it possible to change your brain? Norman Doidge’s inspiring guide to the new brain science explains all of this and more
An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable, and proving that it is, in fact, possible to change your brain. Psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity, its healing powers, and the people whose lives they’ve transformed—people whose mental limitations, brain damage or brain trauma were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.
Example 1: video signals can be fed from an electronic camera to brain through tongue, brain on its own figure it out that the signals coming from tongue are not corresponding to taste but rather of vision and reroute the signals to the area of the brain that processes visual signals (from eyes) where the signals are decoded and person can see the image being captured by video camera- without using eyes!!! Great potential for blind population which has blindness due to eyes problems (and not due to brain itself- like in stroke)!
Example 2: paralysed people can regain movement of affected part! it is demonstrated through experiments that movement can be learnt again. when the brain area controlling movement is damaged due to stroke or haemorrhage, neighbouring brain area can take over its role provided regular training is given for a period of time. Real reason of a part remaining impacted is that the people shift the burden to other limb and do not attempt to make the affected part work after a while believing that it can’t be used forever!
Why to read this book:
none of us is having a perfect brain. we or people we love may be struggling with brain handicaps without being aware of it – and which can be easily addressed provided they are identified!
we may attribute many of our weaknesses to lack of interest, effort, potential, etc. We are good at finding some reason, answer to observed phenomenon. we accept easy explanations… for example, if a student is poor in maths.. usual explanation is: he doesn’t put enough effort/ he doesn’t like math/ he doesn’t have potential for math, etc.
even seemingly normal people may be having difficulty in certain areas and are not even aware about it- like some student may be having problem in maths, like one of the scientist’s story in this book, though he/she may be bright in other few subjects. This may be attributed to a small area in the brain which needs to be strengthened. and when exercises aimed at that particular area of the brain are undertaken difficulty in maths problem evaporated!
this approach is very different from the one which aims to train the brain as a whole. Here the cause of poor performance in specific domain (like maths) is pin pointed to specific area/region of the brain and then that specific brain region is targeted with very specific exercises (like, clock reading exercise where the clock has 10 hands instead of usual 3 of hour, minute, second).”Amazon Reader
