The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity


For someone who suffers — or knows someone who suffers — from an injury or illness related to the brain, both this book as well as Doidge’s previous will provide information — and perhaps hope — that the brain can heal itself.

The Macklis group was able to induce stem cells deep in the cerebral cortex of adult mice to replace damaged neurons. These new neurons grew from already present immature precursor cells into fully formed, connected, and mature replacements. These home grown neurons demonstrate for the first time that the brain can heal itself from the inside out, without transplantation.
