Can you really rewire an adult brain?
In theory the answer is ‘yes’, but there’s a problem: no one seems to know exactly how to do it!
In her new book “Override: My Quest to go Beyond Brain Training and Take Control of my Mind“, science journalist Caroline Williams went off on a world-wide mission to find the answer.
Visiting top neuroscientists in their labs, she volunteers herself as a guinea pig in studies, challenging researchers to make real changes to her — functioning, but imperfect — brain.
