The Mind and the Brain

Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force

Jeffrey M. Schwartz

Discover the groundbreaking work on the mind and the brain that confirms the independent existence of the mind and demonstrates the human control over the workings of the brain. This book argues that the human mind is an independent entity that can shape and control the functioning of the physical brain through mental force. Based on our emerging understanding of adult neuroplasticity, the book shares the scientific first of using the power of self-directed neuroplasticity to transform the treatment of neurological dysfunctions from dyslexia to stroke. Additionally, it connects the concept of mental force with the ancient practice of mindfulness in Buddhist tradition and offers convincing scientific evidence of human free will and moral choice.
