"Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Dr. Norman Doidge talks about an astonishing new science called neuroplasticity, which is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. His new book, "The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories Of Personal Triumph From The Frontiers Of Brain Science" will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential."
Although this video claims to be the 'full version' it is less than half of the length of the program, by the same name, that I recently watched on a local satellite educational channel. In the longer version of this presentation, Dr. Doidge mentions that our individual reality is a result of the information that we constantly input into the brain, hence the importance of becoming aware of what we are thinking.. I know this may seem like new age blather, but he contends that the brain does not make a value judgement on the quality of the information, but rather accepts it unconditonally. In fact, Chapter 8 of Dr. Doidge's book 'The Brain That Changes Itself' is titled, 'Imagination: How Thinking Makes It So'.
As a wise friend of mine once commented, "You get what you concentrate upon. There is no other main rule. " [Seth, 'The Nature of Personal Reality']
