  1. Interesting video that's for sure.
    The brain is quite an amazing thing. I am currently reading a book called "The Brain That Changes Itself", which examines the idea of neuro-plasticity - the brain's ability to re-wire itself.

  2. I've found Doidge's book to be fascinating, too. A must read, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the post, Kate!
