We often see neuroplasticity as one of the brain’s greatest assets. The neuroplastic potential to restore function after trauma, resist the deterioration that comes with aging, and bolster core capabilities borders on miraculous.
But there’s another side to neuroplasticity . . .
In fact, many of the things that bother us about ourselves – our bad habits, our unhappy thoughts – are actually the result of plasticity, too.
In this week’s webinar in the Brain-Smart series, Norman Doidge, MD, explains why neuroplasticity can sometimes work against us.
You might find it surprising. It’s only 2 minutes, so please check it out.
Despite its “dark side,” neuroplasticity has some remarkable benefits. Norman will be sharing those benefits with us, including a fascinating look at a woman who was born with only half a brain.
So I hope you’ll join us this Wednesday. Neuroplasticity can lead to powerful change in people’s lives, and we’ll give you some nuanced but clear ways to use it.
