The brain that changes itself : stories of personal triumph from the frontiers of brain science by Norman Doidge( Book )
63 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 2,702 libraries worldwide
A new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychoanalyst Doidge traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformed--people whose mental limitations or brain damage were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.--From publisher description
The brain's way of healing : remarkable discoveries and recoveries from the frontiers of neuroplasticity by Norman Doidge( Book )
22 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 1,388 libraries worldwide
"Norman Doidge's revolutionary new book shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us--light, sound, vibration, movement--which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes or accidents; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and cerebral palsy radically improved, and other near-miracle recoveries. 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"--
The brain that changes itself [stories of personal triumph from the frontiers of brain science] by Norman Doidge( Sound Recording )
20 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 347 libraries worldwide
"Fascinating. Doidge's book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain."--Oliver Sacks. The discovery that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains -- even into old age -- is the most important breakthrough in neuroscience in four centuries. In this revolutionary look at the brain, bestselling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed. Introducing principles we can all use as well as a riveting collection of case histories -- stroke patients cured, a woman with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, learning and emotional disorders overcome, IQs raised, and aging brains rejuvenated -- The brain that changes itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history" (The New York times)
InRealLife by Beeban Kidron( visu )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"InRealLife takes us on a journey from the world of Silicon Valley to the bedrooms of British teenagers in order to ask an important question: What exactly is the internet doing to our children? This revealing documentary examines how children are adapting to the technological world we live in, and how free and open connectivity can have alienating and addictive side-effects, especially on the youngest minds using it. This eye-opening and sometimes shocking documentary delves into the constantly developing relationship between technology and psychology."--Container
The brain's way of healing remarkable discoveries and recoveries from the frontiers of neuroplasticity by Norman Doidge( Sound Recording )

The brain that changes itself neuroplasticity in clinical practice ( visu )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 242 libraries worldwide
"For centuries the human brain has been thought of as incapable of fundamental change. People suffering from neurological defects, brain damage or strokes were usually written off as hopeless cases. But recent and continuing research into the human brain is radically changing how we look at the potential for neurological recovery. The human brain, as we are now quickly learning, has a remarkable ability to change itself - to rewire itself. Based upon the best-selling book by Toronto psychiatrist and researcher Dr. Norman Doidge, this documentary presents a strong case for reconsidering how we view the human brain. Dr. Doidge travels throughout North America to meet some of the pioneering researchers who made revolutionary discoveries about the plasticity of the brain. He also visits with the people who have been most affected by this research - the patients whose lives have forever been changed - people once thought of as incurable who are now living normal lives."

Neustart im Kopf - Wie sich unser Gehirn selbst repariert Regie: Mike Sheerin, Norman Doidge ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 5 libraries worldwide
So allgemeinverständlich wie der britische Neurologe und Schriftsteller Oliver Sacks erklärt auch der kanadische Psychiater und Psychoanalytiker Norman Doidge in seinem Buch "Neustart im Kopf - Wie sich unser Gehirn selbst repariert" das Prinzip der neuronalen Plastizität und der Anpassungsfähigkeit des Gehirns. Anhand einiger erstaunlicher klinischer Fälle stellt er Ergebnisse der Hirnforschung vor. Die Dokumentation vermittelt äußerst anschaulich die Fähigkeit des menschlichen Gehirns, sich strukturell und funktional umzuorganisieren. Ärzte und Wissenschaftler, die mit ihren kreativen Ansätzen zur Erweiterung des neurologischen und neurobiologischen Wissens beigetragen haben, geben unterhaltsame Einblicke in ihre Arbeit. Dieser neuartige Blick auf das menschliche Gehirn und seine lebenslange Entwicklung eröffnet ungeahnte Perspektiven für Bildung und Kultur und offenbart das Anpassungspotenzial des Menschen.

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Unser Gehirn ist nicht - wie lange angenommen - eine unveränderliche Hardware. Es kann sich vielmehr auf verblüffende Weise umgestalten und sogar selbst reparieren. Norman Doidge verbindet faszinierende Einblicke in die neueste Forschung mit aufsehenerregenden Beispielen aus der Praxis: etwa eine Frau, deren eine Hirnhälfte die Funktionen eines ganzen Gehirns übernahm. Oder der Mann, dessen Gehirn nach einem Schlaganfall die Hirnströme in gesunde Hirnregionen »umleitet± und seinem gelähmten Arm die Bewegungsfähigkeit zurückgibt. All dies ermöglicht unser Gehirn, das stärker und anpassungsfähig
