Description

Details

Barbara Arrowsmith-Young was born with severe learning disabilities that caused teachers to label her as slow, stubborn or worse. But by relying on her formidable memory and iron will, she made her way to graduate school, where she chanced upon reserach that inspired her to invent cognitive exercises to 'fix' her brain. She has gone on to change countless lives. The idea that self-improvement can happen in the brain has now caught fire. Recent discoveries in neuroscience have conclusively demonstrated that by engaging in certain mental tasks, we actually change the structure of our brains - this is known as neuroplasticity. The Woman Who Changed Her Brain powerfully demonstrates how the lives of children and adults struggling with learning disorders can be dramatically transformed. This remarkable book by a brilliant pioneer deepens our understanding of how the brain works. Our brains may shape us, but this book offers clear and hopefully evidence of the corollary: that we shape our brains.
