Norman Doidge, M.D. -- The Brain's Way of Healing (Colfax Avenue)
Dr. Norman Doidge, the New York Times bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself, will discuss and sign his new book The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity ($29.95 Viking). For centuries it was believed that the brain’s complexity prevented recovery from damage or disease. The Brain’s Way of Healing shows that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. As he did so lucidly in The Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain’s performance and health.
