EDIZIONE AGGIORNATA CON UNA NUOVA POSTFAZIONE DELL'AUTORE «Chiunque possieda un cervello trarrà giovamento dalla lettura del libro di norman doidge.» The Columbus Dispatch «Splendido e originalissimo [...] Il libro è uno scrigno delle idee dell’autore e ogni pagina è illuminata dalla radiosa luce dell’ottimismo.» V.S. Ramachandran «Una panoramica avvincente delle nuove, potenti teorie neuroscientifiche che mettono in relazione mente, corpo e anima... Il saggio di norman doidge è la guida michelin a questo nuovo, incoraggiante scrigno di conoscenze e intuizioni.» Boston Globe Negli ultimi secoli la medicina ha considerato il cervello come un organo immutabile e incapace di guarire. Le malattie neurologiche e degenerative erano viste come una condanna senza appello per il malato, i trattamenti farmacologici e riabilitativi poco efficaci o inutili. Ma la visione introdotta dalla neuroplasticità, ossia la capacità del cervello di modificare la propria struttura e il proprio funzionamento, ha aperto la strada a possibilità terapeutiche rivoluzionarie, già presentate da Norman Doidge in Il cervello infinito. A distanza di qualche anno, l’autore approfondisce il tema della guarigione neuroplastica, descrivendone due elementi centrali: l’esercizio fisico e mentale, e il ricorso all’energia, sotto forma di luci, suoni, vibrazioni. Il cervello non è più una scatola impenetrabile, ma un organismo in grado di connettersi al mondo esterno tramite i sensi, e sono proprio questi ultimi i canali da sfruttare per intervenire in modo non invasivo e del tutto sicuro sulle strutture neuronali, così da ricuperarne le funzioni. Una vera e propria rivoluzione copernicana, che allevierà le sofferenze di moltissimi pazienti, e che Doidge racconta con grande ricchezza di particolari, attraverso numerose storie reali. Le guarigioni del cervello è un saggio pieno di speranza, che viene a dirci che il cervello può guarire, anzi, di più: è in grado di curarsi da solo.

In “Quando l’ascolto prende vita”, Paul Madaule risveglia un’abilità che tutti noi abbiamo, un’abilità che ha il potere di migliorare la comunicazione, la creatività e la capacità di apprendimento, permettendo una vita più piena di energia e più attiva. Paul racconta in modo disincantato il Listening Training – la rieducazione all’ascolto - sia come paziente sia come clinico. Diagnosticato dislessico in tenera età, ha potuto sperimentare un incredibile recupero grazie all’aiuto del dr. Alfred Tomatis. Da allora, al Listening Centre di Toronto, Paul ha aiutato migliaia di persone per oltre 35 anni. Descrive il lavoro di rieducazione all’ascolto ed ha creato gli “Earobici”, esercizi quotidiani illustrati con semplicità nel libro, che aiutano a sviluppare e migliorare la capacità d’ascolto. Questo scritto parla di ascolto a tutte le età della vita – per genitori in attesa, per professionisti, per insegnanti, per educatori d’infanzia e per genitori in cerca di aiuto per i loro figli con difficoltà di apprendimento, ADHD o con sindromi dello spettro autistico. “Quando l’ascolto prende vita” è una guida per migliorare e rendere più appagante e consapevole la propria vita.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The New York Times–bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illness. Now in an updated and expanded paperback edition. Winner of the 2015 Gold Nautilus Award in Science & Cosmology In his groundbreaking work The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge introduced readers to neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to change its own structure and function in response to activity and mental experience. Now his revolutionary new book shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. The Brain’s Way of Healing describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the energy around us—in light, sound, vibration, and movement—that can awaken the brain’s own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated chronic pain; recovered from debilitating strokes, brain injuries, and learning disorders; overcame attention deficit and learning disorders; and found relief from symptoms of autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy. 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.

We've all heard stories of people who've experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it's not only possible, it's already occurring. In Spontaneous Evolution, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics reveals how our changing understanding of biology will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet's history and how each of us can participate in this global shift. In collaboration with political philosopher Steve Bhaerman, Dr. Lipton invites readers to reconsider: the ''unquestionable'' pillars of biology, including random evolution, survival of the fittest, and the role of DNA; the relationship between mind and matter; how our beliefs about nature and human nature shape our politics, culture, and individual lives; and how each of us can become planetary ''stem cells'' supporting the health and growth of our world. By questioning the old beliefs that got us to where we are today and keep us stuck in the status quo, we can trigger the spontaneous evolution of our species that will usher in a brighter future.

Anxiety is the most prevalent psychiatric problem of our time. Decades of research have gone into probing its mysteries and developing treatments. But what if we’ve been thinking about fear and anxiety in the wrong way for all these years? This is the groundbreaking premise behind a wave of new research, led by the lab of renowned neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux. He believes that fear and anxiety are not innate states, simply waiting to be unleashed in the brain. Rather they are assembled experiences, and that has huge implications for patients. By mapping brain circuits, LeDoux explains the origins of anxiety disorders and reveals discoveries that can restore sufferers to normality. As impressive as it is timely, Anxious is a comprehensive survey of cutting-edge research revolutionising the way we treat our most pressing mental health issue.

Have you ever seen something that wasn’t really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don’t belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people. People with failing eyesight, paradoxically, may become immersed in a hallucinatory visual world. Hallucinations can be brought on by a simple fever or even the act of waking or falling asleep, when people have visions ranging from luminous blobs of color to beautifully detailed faces or terrifying ogres. Those who are bereaved may receive comforting “visits” from the departed. In some conditions, hallucinations can lead to religious epiphanies or even the feeling of leaving one’s own body. Humans have always sought such life-changing visions, and for thousands of years have used hallucinogenic compounds to achieve them. As a young doctor in California in the 1960s, Oliver Sacks had both a personal and a professional interest in psychedelics. These, along with his early migraine experiences, launched a lifelong investigation into the varieties of hallucinatory experience. Here, with his usual elegance, curiosity, and compassion, Dr. Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to illuminate what hallucinations tell us about the organization and structure of our brains, how they have influenced every culture’s folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all, a vital part of the human condition.

"The dramatic story of the brain's role in creating our world, our experience of it, and ourselves; the basis for a PBS television series by the bestselling David Eagleman. How does a three pound mass of biological matter locked in the dark, silent fortress of the skull produce the extraordinary multi-sensory experience that comprises us, while also constructing reality and guiding us through the endless need to make decisions and determine our judgments and into a future that we are convinced we are shaping? David Eagleman compares the brain to a cityscape with different neighborhoods where neural networks vie for supremacy and determine our behavior in ways we are not always aware or in control of. At the same time, he suggests that the brain works as a storyteller--creating a narrative that allows us to navigate and make sense of a world that it is busy constructing for us"--
