The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity

By Norman Doidge M.D.

From Amazon.com's description: From The New York Times bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illness.

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. As he did so lucidly in The Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain’s performance and health.

This book is sold through Amazon.com and I absolutely recommend it!

Often when I ask this question the answer is "No, well maybe once, but I was just a kid". When is it that most of us began to feel we were no longer creative? How is it that the creativity that is so evident in children does not always survive in us as adults?...

...Let me ask you another question. Do you think you have the potential to be creative? The response to this question is usually more positive, "Yeah, I guess I have the potential, but I don't know where it is". I love that answer, as if potential resided someplace and we could just go and find it. I have not yet met someone who I did not see as having the potential to be creative, think creatively or act creatively...
