a very interesting read. It is very encouraging; the idea of brain plasticity. Anyone read it?

Yes it is an amazing and encouraging book. I think it should be on our must read list.

Dr. Norman Doidge is publishing another book later this year called Impossible Cures.

I am curently doing the free sections and the summer open brain-a-thon
The visual exercises I am doing pretty good at yet all the social ones I am really really poor at but as a person profile this does not surprise me.

Doidge's books and brain training

Hi all,
Re-reading The brain that changes itself helped my partner and I start to notice that I had been mislabelled as a person with mental illness.
My problems are cognitive and sensory. That can pass as like mental illness to everyday folk and all-too many shrinks.

A neuropsych assessment, and following textbook MS relapse made the misdiagnosis undeniable.

In Australia, Doidge also released The brain's way of healing.
I have two questions.
Does he have other books?
What was the brain-training program he recommended?

Thanks,
Michael
