THE BRAIN THAT CHANGES ITSELF Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science

by | Read by Jim Bond

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Using a combination of experimental results, disease studies, and anecdotal information, the author explains how the human brain can change. Every section advances Dr. Doidge's case for the existence of what he terms "brain elasticity." He cites practical applications for the treatment of autism, stroke, and memory loss. Narrator Jim Bond easily handles the formidable scientific vocabulary of anatomical and biochemical names like “hippocampus,” “dopamine receptors,” and “localizationists.” He renders them into a conversational manner that lightens the heavy load of ponderous detail and psychoanalytical theory. His slow pace and measured diction allow plenty of time for maximum comprehension and absorption. Advanced scientific readers interested in physiological psychology will especially benefit from this challenging disquisition. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
