Interview with Norman Doidge, author of “The Brain that Changes Itself”

Norman Doidge, who writes interestingly and engagingly about the concept of brain plasticity in his book The Brain That Changes Itself, is featured in a Q & A with The Varsity Newspaper.

Not too much new for long time fans of Dr. Doidge’s book, but here’s the money quote that highlights why we get so excited about brain plasticity:

… the changes described in my book were never thought possible. They’re not simple mood changes or short-term attitude changes, they were changes in their brains’ processing power. That’s pretty awe-inspiring.
