Neuroplasticity: Your Brain's Superpower

Change Your Brain and Change Your Life

Philippe Douyon, MD

Neuroplasticity: Your Brain’s Superpower takes us on a journey through things that influence the evolution of our brains, including various diseases. Not only do we learn about these illnesses, but also about the potential healing that can take place after the injury. This book expands the conversation about brain health so that we can include the principles of neuroplasticity to help us take control of our neurological destinies.

We live in a time in which more than 100 million Americans suffer from a neurological illness. Not only is that number expected to rise and the annual cost to care for people with neurological disorders expected to surpass 1 trillion dollars, but the impact of these illnesses on our lives is unlike any other. Neurological disorders affect every fiber of our being. They cause physical, psychological, emotional, and cognitive impairments. They rob us of our lives and families in a way that diseases of other organs can’t. Oftentimes it seems that we are helpless to do anything about it. But, what if that wasn’t true?

Neuroplasticity: Your Brain’s Superpower empowers us to have a different relationship with our brains. Instead of just succumbing to whatever potential dysfunction, degeneration, or disease that may impact our nervous system, in this book we explore the ways in which we can give our brains exactly what they need to adapt, heal, and thrive.

Neuroplasticity: Your Brain's Superpower...provides a primer on brain structure and function in an accessible reader-friendly manner...consistent with an ever-expanding body of research attesting to the benefits of exercise and mindfulness and related forms of mental/brain training, Dr. Douyon reveals how these mind-body therapies work to foster neuroplasticity, preventively and for rehabilitation (providing hope for those who have been stricken by debilitating brain disease). Of special interest in this era of political unrest is a chapter on neurology of decision making, information processing and control and how cognition can play a central role in major societal events. This is a book that everyone should read, especially people who have always wondered about the brain and its mysteries. Dr. Douyon helps demystify the brain and neurological disorders; it provides hope and a way to exert influence over how one's brain can be protected as well as healed.

Neuroplasticity-I was briefly introduced to this term in medical school and then began to understand it during my rehabilitation training as I watched patients recover from different types of brain injuries. From a public perspective, neuroplasticity is a poorly understood and a rarely mentioned term, yet it is such a huge part of life. Dr. Douyon does an amazing job in his book of breaking down a complicated concept so we can understand how this term applies to many aspects of our life as he walks us through the Neuroverse.

In his book Neuroplasticity: Your Brain's Superpower, Dr. Douyon explores the emerging science of neuroplasticity in relation to common neurological disorders. The book is written in an easy to comprehend language and shall appeal to the casual reader looking to enhance and harness the healing power of the brain as well as to the neuroscientists among us.
