Dr. Oz Show - Montel Williams and Dr. Doidge on Healing the Brain I watched the above 3-4 minute segment on the Dr. Oz show yesterday. I found it intriguing, and liked what Dr. Doige had to say. Afterwards, I discovered my local library has his latest book, entitled... The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity I found this review on Amazon... The principles of brain plasticity presented by Doidge can be summarized as follows (chapter 3): - Events such as strokes, infections, head injuries, radiation, toxins and degenerative processes cause brain injury and affect our neurons. While some neurons die following such events, the new science is showing us that some neurons start to signal in irregular ways following injury, which can make the brain "noisy" and confused. Other neurons become dormant (referred to as "non-use"). Improvement is based on the extent to which these neurons can heal, rewire, and recover from changes in function. ....................................... I'll be getting this book soon, and will get back with a book review after I'm done reading it.
