Book Review: The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge

Neuroplasticity really came to life in the 1960s as scientists started to explore the inner workings of the brain, and found that neurons could ‘re-organise’ after traumatic events.  This book focuses on the stories of how our amazing brain changes its structure with every activity we perform, every thought we create, and the actions we take.

The Power of Sleep!

“O sleep, O gentle sleep, nature’s soft nurse” – William Shakespeare We all know how glorious it feels to be well rested.
