In late 2004, the Mind and Life Institute brought Western Scientists together with the Dalai Lama and other distinguished Buddhist masters to discuss the cutting edge research being conducted in neuroplasticity, which examines whether neurons can be changed and even grown.
The findings are as astonishing as they are helpful. Flying in the face of previous assumptions, the current research shows that not only is it possible for us to change the physical brain, but it is within reach of every single one of us.
Through research into neuroplasticity, it has been shown that we can:
Surprising, encouraging, and full of good news that we all want to hear, Change Your Mind, Change Your Brain will help us not only to change our brains but also the way we approach our lives - for the better.

"The book holds no neuroplasticity tips, but it is a fascinating exploration of the ways the mind can change the brain." (Publishers Weekly)
The landmark scientific studies in neuroplasticity are described so the researchers' excitement for the subject is contagious. The potential for changing our own brains, mental function and emotional intelligence is clear.
Yes, without a doubt. Very fascinating, linked to research and explains in good detail the connections made in the brain.
I thought the person reading the book sounded robotic and it was hard to listen to it, so I went back to just reading the book.
The narrator was horrible. I wish the author would read the book.
I really enjoyed reading this book, it has a lot of great insights into neuroplasticity. That and the combination of Buddhist philosophy made for a great read and incredible insight.
Provided practical information without the need to sift through thousands of pages of research reports.
There is too much valuable information to digest in one sitting.
If you enjoy hearing about vile things being done to lab animals to "prove" something that is completely obvious to even the average person, all done in a chirpy voice, you'll love this book.
buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, buddhism, neuroscience (and how buddhism is better than science)... budddhism. SUCH GARBAGE... AVOID AT ALL COSTS. NOT SCIENCE
