Book Description :

The real story of how our brains and nervous systems change throughout our lifetimes—with or without “brain training.” Fifty years ago, neuroscientists thought that a mature brain was fixed like a fly in amber, unable to change. Today, we know that our brains and nervous systems change throughout our lifetimes. This concept of neuroplasticity has captured the imagination of a public eager for self-improvement—and has inspired countless Internet entrepreneurs who peddle dubious “brain training” games and apps. In this book, Moheb Costandi offers a concise and engaging overview of neuroplasticity for the general reader, describing how our brains change continuously in response to our actions and experiences. Costandi discusses key experimental findings, and describes how our thinking about the brain has evolved over time. He explains how the brain changes during development, and the “synaptic pruning” that takes place before brain maturity. He shows that adult brains can grow new cells (citing, among many other studies, research showing that sexually mature male canaries learn a new song every year). He describes the kind of brain training that can bring about improvement in brain function. It's not gadgets and games that promise to “rewire your brain” but such sustained cognitive tasks as learning a musical instrument or a new language. (Costandi also notes that London cabbies increase their gray matter after rigorous training in their city's complicated streets.) He tells how brains compensate after stroke or injury; describes addiction and pain as maladaptive forms of neuroplasticity; and considers brain changes that accompany childhood, adolescence, parenthood, and aging. Each of our brains is custom-built. Neuroplasticity is at the heart of what makes us human.

Book Description :

What do these have in common? A soprano who can’t sing from a printed score, a violoncellist who can’t keep from crying while playing, a woman who can walk backwards but not forwards, a man who can’t move his hands unless he’s playing the violin, a priest who can’t say the words “you” or “we”, eyes that close, a dancer’s legs that refuse to dance, and a magician’s hands that move on their own. In this book, Dr. Farias shows how patients affected by a wide variety of disorders like writer's cramp, task-specific tremors, focal dystonia or perceptive illusions are trapped within the functioning of their own brains, which is producing illusions, leading them to display rigid behaviors and repetitive movements and thoughts. Every illusion has some bug or incoherency. When the patients are conscious of the errors in their illusions, the illusion breaks inducing a neuroplastic change that allows restored functional movement. By the way of insight, attention, awareness, imagination, movement and persistence, the patients whose cases are described in this book were able to break the illusion that was shackling them and reconstruct a new, accurate perception and proper function. Intertwined . How to induce neuroplasticity, defines how to treat these disorders through a different lens, considering patients as individuals with distinct background experiences and special needs. Intertwined is full of exercises, fMRI images and statistics that show how imagination, feelings, memories and movements can actually change the way our brain functions. This book sets a new and hopeful paradigm in the study of some disorders, which have, until now, been considered intractable disorders. This is the book that all patients must read and all practitioners should have. Are you living in a loop? It is time to break it.

Book Description :

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The New York Times–bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illness. Now in an updated and expanded paperback edition. Winner of the 2015 Gold Nautilus Book Award in Science & Cosmology In his groundbreaking work The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge introduced readers to neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to change its own structure and function in response to activity and mental experience. Now his revolutionary new book shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. The Brain’s Way of Healing describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the energy around us—in light, sound, vibration, and movement—that can awaken the brain’s own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated chronic pain; recovered from debilitating strokes, brain injuries, and learning disorders; overcame attention deficit and learning disorders; and found relief from symptoms of autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia, with simple approaches anyone can use. 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.

Book Description :

We live in a time in which more than 100 million Americans suffer from a neurological illness. Not only is that number expected to rise and the annual cost to care for people with neurological disorders expected to surpass 1 trillion dollars, but the impact of these illnesses on our lives is unlike any other. Neurological disorders affect every fiber of our being. They cause physical, psychological, emotional, and cognitive impairments. They rob us of our lives and families in a way that diseases of other organs can’t. Oftentimes it seems that we are helpless to do anything about it. But, what if that wasn’t true? Neuroplasticity: Your Brain’s Superpower empowers us to have a different relationship with our brains. Instead of just succumbing to whatever potential dysfunction, degeneration, or disease that may impact our nervous system, in this book we explore the ways in which we can give our brains exactly what they need to adapt, heal, and thrive. Neuroplasticity: Your Brain’s Superpower takes us on a journey through things that influence the evolution of our brains, including various diseases. Not only do we learn about these illnesses, but also about the potential healing that can take place after the injury. This book expands the conversation about brain health so that we can include the principles of neuroplasticity to help us take control of our neurological destinies.

Brain plasticity is the focus of a growing body of research with significant implications for neurorehabilitation. This state-of-the-art volume explores ways in which brain-injured individuals may be helped not only to compensate for their loss of cognitive abilities, but also possibly to restore those abilities. Expert contributors examine the extent to which damaged cortical regions can actually recover and resume previous functions, as well as how intact regions are recruited to take on tasks once mediated by the damaged region. Evidence-based rehabilitation approaches are reviewed for a range of impairments and clinical populations, including both children and adults.

Book Description :

The second edition of the book "Neuroplasticity and its Dark Sides" stresses some less well-known aspects of neuroplasticity, namely that there are two kinds of neuroplasticity, one that is beneficial to a person and one that may be harmful. It also discusses that there are functions that can easily be changed through activation of neuroplasticity while other functions are more difficult to change or more or less "hard-wired." Activation of neuroplasticity is essential for learning new skills and adapting to changing demands, but neuroplasticity can also create symptoms and signs of common and widespread diseases such as chronic neuropathic pain and severe tinnitus. Such maladaptive neuroplasticity is also the primary cause of other plasticity disorders such as spasticity, and it may be involved, together with other factors such as the immune system, in the development of diseases such as fibromyalgia, the chronic fatigue syndrome and probably many other disorders. Understanding these dark sides of neuroplasticity is vital for treatment of many common diseases. Reversing such bad plastic changes would be an ideal treatment of many disorders if it could be done efficiently and with little adverse side effects. Another less well-understood property of neuroplasticity, namely that not all brain systems are plastic is also discussed in the book. The fact that attempts to change sexual preferences have been unsuccessful indicates that there are functions of some neural circuits that cannot be changed or are difficult to change. This means that there are neural circuits that are not plastic, but "hard-wired." Long-term memory and a person's personality are other examples of common functions that are stable during a person's life indicating that some very complex circuitry in the brain may be less plastic than earlier assumed. The failed success in the treatment of posttraumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) is another example of functions that are difficult to change. The book provides a comprehensive description of the basis for neuroplasticity in general. The ability to change the efficacy of synapses and the change in protein synthesis are discussed in detail. The role of "maladaptive plasticity" in the development of many disorders of the nervous system and how the understanding of neuroplasticity can benefit diagnosis and treatment of many diseases of the nervous system are other themes of the book.

Book Description :

Studies in neuroscience demonstrate that a focus on mindfulness meditation and contemplative spiritual practice has the capacity to increase our non-anxious awareness and significantly lower our stress. Not only is this finding of immediate importance for pastoral counselors and psychotherapists, it will even necessitate a paradigm shift in the way that pastoral and spiritual practitioners approach the general care of souls. The starting point for such a paradigm shift is an acknowledgement of the built-in negativity bias of the brain, and how certain beliefs and theological views may inadvertently reinforce the bias to the detriment of individuals and faith communities. Once necessary for human survival, the ingrained bias can often be excessive for today’s world, resulting in negatively disproportionate assessments of life events and human relationships. To balance the neural predisposition toward negativity and anxious awareness, it is necessary for pastoral and spiritual caregivers, and those in their care, to cultivate a regular contemplative-meditational practice. The Power of Neuroplasticity for Pastoral and Spiritual Care focuses on the groundbreaking finding of contemporary neuroscience—that the brain is built for change across the entire lifespan. It is designed to make the research accessible to and relevant for those engaged in the work of pastoral and spiritual care in order to help clients and congregants effect lasting and transformative changes in the mind and brain. Through the regular practice of contemplative prayer and meditation, we can literally calm the stress region of the brain in order to live less anxiously and experience more fully the peace and joy of the present moment. The introduction of mindfulness- and acceptance-based counseling approaches will provide pastoral and spiritual practitioners with an important therapeutic framework to situate their work, from which they can make more informed and effective interventions geared toward using the mind to change the brain.

Book Description :

a trip through the history of searching for how to improve mental health and treat illness- treatment involves a division of labor- psychologists, social workers and counselors, provide "talking therapies" to help clients solve problems. "Biological Psychiatry" treats the problems of brain biology, usually with medications. Neuroplasticity is disrupting this arrangement along with decades of accepted wisdom about brain biology. Neuroplasticity is a process where the brain makes changes in its own internal biology. This happens with any learning experience. So called "talking therapies" always involve learning. They are more accurately described as "learning therapies" - with what we know about how learning affects the brain, these treatments also result in changes of brain biology. A study in the UCLA Psychiatry department demonstrated that designing learning experiences and applying principles of neuroplasticity corrected biological malfunctions in the brain, that are implicated in obsessive-compulsive disorder. with zero side effects. Studies of medicines focus on how these meds reduce symptoms of pathology in behavior and thinking. They are offered as biological therapies- yet, after more than six decades of research and clinical practice, it's tough to find evidence for an agent that actually fixes a biological brain glitch. The UCLA team also discussed what neuroscience teaches us about consciousness and how it affects the material biology of the brain- awareness is a very different part of reality from electrical and metabolic activity. Consciousness gives us the power to choose-free will. Self-directed neuro- plasticity happens when we choose to engage in a learning experience. What is going on in the firing of brain neurons and metabolic activity does affect how we feel, what we think and how we act. We also know that where we choose to direct our attention, and how we choose to act, affects the physical activity of the brain.

Book Description :

"What conception of mental architecture can survive the evidence of neuroplasticity and neural reuse in the human brain? In particular, what sorts of modules are compatible with this evidence? This book shows how developmental and adult neuroplasticity, as well as evidence of pervasive neural reuse, forces a revision to the standard conceptions of modularity and spells the end of a hardwired and dedicated language module. It argues from principles of both neural reuse and neural redundancy that language is facilitated by a composite of modules (or module-like entities), few if any of which are likely to be linguistically special, and that neuroplasticity provides evidence that (in key respects and to an appreciable extent) few if any of them ought to be considered developmentally robust, though their development does seem to be constrained by features intrinsic to particular regions of cortex (manifesting as domain-specific predispositions or acquisition biases). In the course of doing so, the book articulates a schematically and neurobiologically precise framework for understanding modules and their supramodular interactions"--
