Neuroplasticity – being able to change the brain

Info

Through a documentation on arte (Neustart im Kopf) I became aware of this topic.

The Canadian psychiatrist Norman Doidge wrote a book about this:
The Brain That Changes Itself

This is about the ability of the human brain to reorganize its structures and functions after physical damage respectively the adaptability of the human brain in case of psychic limitations like compulsive disturbances and post-traumatic stress symptoms.
