The Woman Who Changed Her Brain
And Other Inspiring Stories of Pioneering Brain TransformationBook - 2012
Barbara Arrowsmith Young was born with severe learning disabilities. Undaunted, she used her few strengths to develop brain exercises to conquer her neurological deficits. She has gone on to change countless lives. Young's work is one of the first examples of the extensive practical application of "neuroplasticity". Here her personal story is interwoven with fascinating accounts of the clinical mysteries and triumphant stories Barbara has encountered during her career. The Arrowsmith cognitive training program originated in Toronto in 1978, but is now being implemented in schools in Canada and the U.S.
