In his book "The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science," Norman Doidge, a research psychiatrist at Columbia and the University of Toronto, slowly turns everything we thought we knew about the brain upside down. Only a few decades ago, scientists considered the brain to be fixed or "hardwired." Doidge tells inspirational stories of transformation as he interviews the scientists and their subjects, gathering the evidence that the brain can rewire itself, even in the face of trauma, and the functions of the brain can be strengthened just like a muscle.
