This book will give you hope. It’s all about Neuroplasticity; the belief that the brain can completely rewire itself to cope with injuries or deficits. Neuroplasticity proponents suggest that the structure of the brain is not rigid. In fact, they propose that the brain will compensate for damaged or even completely missing areas by shifting the functionality to another area of the brain entirely.
It’s full of case studies from Doige’s storied career from working with actual patients with various brain injuries, as well as those of other professionals in the field. I enjoyed reading it, and it gave me some hope that my brain will adapt to my situation, even if it takes a long time. Very interesting.
