Train Your Mind Change Your Brain

The first popular account of the new science of neuroplasticity, Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain recounts the discovery of how the brain can change as a result of the life we lead as well as the thoughts we think. Based on a meeting between the Dalai Lama and western scientists, it explores how meditation and other forms of mental training can alter the structure and function of the brain in ways that offer new hope for victims of stroke, people suffering from depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder, and children with dyslexia–as well as anyone who wishes to cultivate a greater sense of well-being and compassion.
