This book is about the discovery that the human brain has its own unique way of healing. For centuries we believed that the price we paid for our brain?s complexity was that, compared to other organs, it was fixed and unregenerative ? unable to recover from damage or illness. In his revolutionary new book, Norman Doidge turns this belief on its head.... more...

An astonishing new scientific discovery called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the adult human brain is fixed and unchanging. It is, instead, able to change its own structure and function, even into old age. Psychiatrist and researcher Norman Doidge, MD, travelled around the United States to meet the brilliant scientists... more...

In fact, older people are more resistant... more...

Optimal cerebral blood flow is coordinated by functional hyperemia and cerebral autoregulation. These processes ensure that the metabolic demands of the brain are met at all times. Both in vivo and in vitro studies support a role for astrocytes in the regulation of cerebral blood flow. In this we review the cellular mechanisms contributing to astrocyte-mediated... more...

Analysis and dissociation have proved to be useful tools to understand the basic functions of the brain and the mind, which therefore have been decomposed to a multitude of ever smaller subsystems and pieces by most scientific approaches. However, the understanding of complex functions such as consciousness will not succeed without a more global consideration... more...

This book results from a group meeting held at the Institute for Scientific Exchange in Torino, Italy. The central aim was for scientists to ?think together? in new ways with those in the humanities inspired by quantum theory and especially quantum brain theory. These fields of inquiry have suffered conceptual estrangement but now are ripe for rapprochement,... more...

A collection of stimulating studies on the past, the present, and the future of consciousness, Consciousness Evolving contributes to understanding some of the most important conceptual problems of our time. The advent of the modern synthesis together with the human genome project affords a platform for considering what it is that makes humans distinctive.... more...
