Your Brain is Plastic
The brain can change. Neuroplasticity is real https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroplasticity. Like a trip to the gym, a session with a trained Educational Therapist will build muscle... neurons... brain matter. THINK! Therapy uses time tested tools targeting clients' cognitive weaknesses.
Through the research of great minds like Dr. Norman Doidge, it has been scientifically proven brains can HEAL. Our research lead us to Doidge's book (highlighted below). In reading it our perspective changed and we didn't rest until we found brain balancing tools that WORKED.
Let's buff out your brain!
Fundamental Rule of Brain Plasticity Discovered (Neuroscience News/ 2018): https://neurosciencenews.com/brain-plasticity-neuroscience-9414/
About the Book… (with acknowledgements to: http://www.normandoidge.com/ ) "THE BRAIN CAN CHANGE ITSELF. It is a plastic, living organ that can actually change its own structure and function, even into old age. Arguably the most important breakthrough in neuroscience since scientists first sketched out the brain’s basic anatomy, this revolutionary discovery, called neuroplasticity, promises to overthrow the centuries-old notion that the brain is fixed and unchanging.
The brain is not, as was thought, like a machine, or “hardwired” like a computer. Neuroplasticity not only gives hope to those with mental limitations, or what was thought to be incurable brain damage, but expands our understanding of the healthy brain and the resilience of human nature. Norman Doidge, MD, a psychiatrist and researcher, set out to investigate neuroplasticity and met both the brilliant scientists championing it and the people whose lives they’ve transformed. The result is this book, a riveting collection of case histories detailing the astonishing progress of people whose conditions had long been dismissed as hopeless.
We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, a woman labeled retarded who cured her deficits with brain exercises and now cures those of others, blind people learning to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, painful phantom limbs erased, stroke patients recovering their faculties, children with cerebral palsy learning to move more gracefully, entrenched depression and anxiety disappearing, and lifelong character traits altered.
Doidge takes us into terrain that might seem fantastic. We learn that our thoughts can switch our genes on and off, altering our brain anatomy. Scientists have developed machines that can follow these physical changes in order to read people’s thoughts, allowing the paralyzed to control computers and electronics just by thinking. We learn how people of average intelligence can, with brain exercises, improve their cognition and perception in order to become savant calculators, develop muscle strength, or learn to play a musical instrument, simply by imagining doing so.
Using personal stories from the heart of this neuroplasticity revolution, Dr. Doidge explores the profound implications of the changing brain for understanding the mysteries of ... culture and education in an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at human possibility and human nature."
