內容簡介

內容簡介 發現大腦如何形塑我們的生活,深入探索神經可塑性的新領域人類大腦所釋放的力量比我們想像得更強大,但我們卻經常假設人類的本性是一成不變。在經歷多種大腦疾病的挫折,例如憂鬱症、焦慮、過動症、上癮症或創傷症候群,更嚴重則包括閉鎖症候群或精神病,幾乎是無藥可救的嚴重疾病。然而本書作者神經生物學家Niels Birbaumer將顛覆以上假設,他認為神經可塑性的無限可能性可以改造大腦本身,甚至可能克服這些大腦疾病。透過多年的研究與實驗,人們可以透過大腦訓練而不需倚靠藥物,也能開啟大腦力量的無限可能。 Our brains are more powerful than we ever realised. Too often, we assume that people's natures are fixed, immutable. For sufferers of depression, anxiety, ADHD, addiction, or the after-effects of stroke, this can be a difficult thought. For those with extreme conditions, such as locked-in syndrome or psychopathy, it can feel as if there is no hope at all. However, in Your Brain Knows More Than You Think, leading neurobiologist Niels Birbaumer turns these assumptions on their head, arguing that neuroplasticity - the virtually limitless capacity of the brain to remould itself - is enough to overcome almost any condition, however life-limiting it seems. Like the fathers and mothers of psychiatry, Birbaumer explores the sometimes-wild frontiers of a new way of thinking about our brains and behaviour. Through actual cases from his research and practice, he shows how we can change through brain training alone - and without risky drugs - if we simply open our minds.
