In The Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge introduces us to fascinating stories at the cutting edge of brain science and the emerging discipline of 'neuroplasticity' . We meet the stroke victim, who - unable to feed or dress himself - learned to move and talk again, the woman with a rare brain condition that left her feeling as though she was perpetually falling but who through a series of exercises rewired her brain to overcome this, and the maverick scientists overturning centuries of assumptions about the brain and its capacity for renewal.
