    Author: DOIDGE NORMAN

    An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, travelled around the US to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformed - people whose mental limitations or brain damage were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvellous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.

    Title: Brain the Story of You
    Author: EAGLEMAN DAVID

    The accessible and definitive overview of this most sophisticated organ by bestselling neuroscientist David Eagleman will take the reader on the journey of a lifetime - to the very centre of their brain. A 3lb mass of moist biological matter, the brain is locked away in the dark and silent fortress of the skull, and yet somehow it produces the extraordinary multi-sensory experience that comprises us, every day of our lives. Just how it does this is revealed through six fascinating chapters, as Eagleman shows how the brain - a great storyteller - constructs reality and allows us to navigate a complex world of decision-making. Eagleman also takes the long view of the human brain's trajectory in the coming centuries and millennia, asking pertinent questions about our future. Along the way, Eagleman meets nuns, extreme sports athletes, convicted criminals, genocide survivors, autistic people, and multi-disciplinary experts from child psychologists to brain surgeons. He takes part in experiments that shine an important light on the brain's inner cosmos. He also explores the dark side of human behaviour, as he comes to the realisation that the best and worst of what humans do to each other can be understood through the prism of the brain. From empathy to genocide, neuroscience is vital to understanding human nature. Drawing on the latest discoveries, Eagleman shows that it also has the power to change our world for the better - it can enhance our wellbeing, boost our cognitive skills and even forge a more just society, and ultimately a better future for everyone. Packed with photographs of specially commissioned computer-generated images, as well as accessible and glossy visualisations of scientific data, The Brain is a celebration of one of the most extraordinary stories on earth.

    Title: Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries & Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity
    Author: DOIDGE NORMAN

    Norman Doidge described the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in four hundred years: the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience--what we call neuroplasticity. His revolutionary new audiobook shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us--light, sound, vibration, movement--which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes or accidents; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and cerebral palsy radically improved, and other near-miracle recoveries. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia with simple approaches anyone can use. 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.

    The Brain's Way of Healing explores the astonishing advances in the discovery of neuroplasticity, showing that the brain has its own unique way of healing, only recently uncovered. Norman Doidge discusses a series of remarkable recoveries: patients told they would never improve have years of chronic pain alleviated or damage from debilitating strokes undone, and symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, brain injury, autism or learning disorders are reversed. He also shows how the risk of dementia can be lowered by 60%. Using stories to present cutting-edge science, Doidge illustrates principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain's performance.

    Author: KWINT MARIUS & WINGATE RICHARD

    The brain is a unique and enigmatic organ. It cannot be transplanted, and is one of the most complex entities in the known universe. Unusually, this book asks not what our brains do for us, but what we have done to brains, following the long quest to manipulate and decipher this most exceptional of human organs. Brains explores the ways that we have sought to understand and classify the brain over the centuries. It delves into the eerie world of brain collecting: the practice of storing and cataloguing brains -- including those of Albert Einstein, the notorious murderer Edward H Ruloff and pioneering feminist Helen Gardner -- as well as addressing the sinister practices involving brains that took place during the Third Reich period.Lavishly illustrated, the book includes an array of fascinating images -- from Leonardo da Vinci's painstaking drawings of the dissected brain to visceral photography of brain collections and real brains, as well as work from contemporary artists such as Corinne Day and Helen Pynor. This is accompanied by illuminating and accessible commentary from neuroscientist Richard Wingate and art historian Marius Kwint, explaining how humans have imagined, interacted and tried to come to terms with this infinitely mysterious organ.

    Title: Breaking the Patterns of Depression
    Author: YAPKO MICHAEL

    Twenty to thirty million Americans suffer from some form of diagnosable depression, and their ranks are growing. Psychologist Michael D. Yapko explains that in order to find relief, more than the current episode of depression must be examined. InBreaking the Patterns of Depression,he presents skills that enable readers to understand and ultimately avert depression's recurring cycles. Focusing on future prevention as well as initial treatment, the book includes over one hundred structured activities to help sufferers learn the skills necessary to become and remain depression-free. Breaking the Patterns of Depressionbegins by translating the clinical literature on psychotherapy and antidepressant medication into language that can be used to enhance an understanding of depression, and to personalize individual cures. Yapko uses a conversational, anecdotal tone that encourages readers to take an active approach to helping themselves. Special sections entitled ""Learn by Doing"" and ""Shifting Perspectives"" help develop the skills necessary to manage difficult experiences. Readers learn how to solve problems effectively, anticipate the likely consequences of their actions, think and act in a direct, goal-oriented fashion, balance different areas of their lives, and use self-knowledge to stay out of harmful situations. More realistic and helpful than other depression-management books on the market,Breaking the Patterns of Depressiondefines what causes depression and, best of all, clarifies what can be done about it. With this knowledge in hand, readers can control their depression, rather than having depression control them.

    Capacity to Care: Gender & Ethical Subjectivity
    ISBN: 9780415399685
    Title: Capacity to Care: Gender & Ethical Subjectivity
    Author: HOLLWAY WENDY


    Wendy Hollway explores a subject that is largely absent from the topical literature on care. Humans are not born with a capacity to care, and this volume explores how this capacity is achieved through the experiences of primary care, gender development and later, parenting.


    In this book, the author addresses the assumption that the capacity to care is innate. She argues that key processes in the early development of babies and young children create the capability for individuals to care, with a focus on the role of intersubjective experience and parent-child relations. The Capacity to Care also explores the controversial belief that women are better at caring than men and questions whether this is likely to change with contemporary shifts in parenting and gender relations. Similarly, the sensitive domain of the quality of care and how to consider whether care has broken down are also debated, alongside a consideration of what constitutes a good enough family.


    The Capacity to Care provides a unique theorization of the nature of selfhood, drawing on developmental and object relations psychoanalysis, as well as philosophical and feminist literatures. It will be of relevance to social scientists studying gender development, gender relations and the family as well as those interested in the ethics of care debate.

    Title: Careful! a User's Guide to Our Injury-prone Minds
    Author: CASNER STEVE

    The modern world can be a dangerous place, filled with fast cars, smart phones, drugs and extreme sports. Meanwhile, we humans are as fragile as ever. In fact, after a century of lengthening life span and a decline in injuries and accidental deaths, avoidable life-threatening accidents are on the rise again. The question is - why?Steve Casner has devoted his career to studying the psychology of safety, and he knows better than most that there's not a safety warning we won't ignore, or a fool-proof device we can't turn into an implement of disaster.Careful! is a user-guide to our injury-prone minds. It will help us understand why we behave in such contradictory ways by, for example, insisting on fat-free salad dressing but then habitually texting while driving. Casner explains the psychological traps that can lead us to the scene of an accident. Based on years of research and understanding of human behaviour learnt as a research psychologist at NASA, Casner shows how and when injuries happen, so that we learn what we should really be worrying about. Careful! will help keep our fingers attached in the kitchen, our kids afloat at the pool and teenagers safe behind the wheel. It will show us all the ways we can take control of our own safety and get through the day in one piece.

    Title: Chasing the Scream: the First & Last Days of the War on Drugs
    Author: HARI JOHANN


    It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned in the United States. On the eve of this centenary, journalist Johann Hari set off on an epic three-year, thirty-thousand-mile journey into the war on drugs. What he found is that more and more people all over the world have begun to recognize three startling truths: Drugs are not what we think they are. Addiction is not what we think it is. And the drug war has very different motives to the ones we have seen on our TV screens for so long.

    In Chasing the Scream, Hari reveals his discoveries entirely through the stories of people across the world whose lives have been transformed by this war. They range from a transsexual crack dealer in Brooklyn searching for her mother, to a teenage hit-man in Mexico searching for a way out. It begins with Hari's discovery that at the birth of the drug war, Billie Holiday was stalked and killed by the man who launched this crusade--and it ends with the story of a brave doctor who has led his country to decriminalize every drug, from cannabis to crack, with remarkable results.

    Chasing the Scream lays bare what we really have been chasing in our century of drug war--in our hunger for drugs, and in our attempt to destroy them. This book will challenge and change how you think about one of the most controversial--and consequential--questions of our time.

    Title: Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology, & How You can Heal
    Author: NAKAZAWA DONNA JACKSON

    The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults but also affects our physical health and overall well-being. Scientists now know on a biochemical level exactly how parents' chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical "fingerprints" on our brains. When we as children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, excessive stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering our body chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting our stress response to "high," which in turn can have a devastating impact on our mental and physical health. Donna Jackson Nakazawa shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. Groundbreaking in its research and inspiring in its clarity, Childhood Disrupted explains how you can reset your biology-and help your loved ones find ways to heal.
