    In this fascinating and far-reaching book, "Newsweek "science writer Sharon Begley reports on how cutting-edge science and the ancient wisdom of Buddhism have come together to reveal that, contrary to popular belief, we have the power to literally change our brains by changing our minds. Recent pioneering experiments in neuroplasticity-the ability of the brain to change in response to experience-reveal that the brain is capable of altering its structure and function, and even of generating new neurons, a power we retain ...

Your brain is what you make it.

Excellent book about new knowledge about your brain and how you can change and control it. The title tells it all.

Neroplasticity

by liebermb on Apr 10, 2008

This book is an investigation of how the brain is capable of changing and transforming. Cutting edge brain science, involving its history with the Dali Lama and Buddhism.

Good background but little substance

by kellyc on Apr 1, 2007

As I was reading reviews of this book, I was expecting methods for exacting neuroplasticity and neurogenesis in our lives. However, the book is an excellent review of the various experiments of how leading researchers in the area of neuroscience have concluded that the human brain is neuroplastic and undergoes routine neurogeneseis even as we age. Much of this research emanated from the Dalai Lama's questioning of a leading group of neuroscientists on whether constant meditation can physically alter the brain structure and hence, help us achieve modifications in how we behave, interact, and achieve different results in life. Unfortunately, although it gave a great historical perspective on how the theories of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity were derived, it misses out on the tangibles that we can use to affect our current situations in life. Overall, an interesting read, but needs more detail on how to affect change in our lives.
