In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Karen Pape tells the story of how some children with early brain damage astounded everyone around them. The brain injury they suffered at or near birth had led to motor problems such as the awkward gait we associate with cerebral palsy. Yet they were able to run, kick a soccer ball, tap dance, and play tennis. This was not supposed to happen. It ran counter to the prevailing belief that the brain is hardwired and fixed. When Dr. Pape first shared her remarkable findings, she ran into fierce opposition frommainstream medicine. Yet this courageous neonatologist didn t back down. In her clinical practice, Pape helped many young brain-damaged children to significantly improve their movement. It led her to ask why some of them could run but not walk with the same ease. Her answer was astounding: By the time they learned to run, their brains had healed. The awkward walking gait was actually a bad habit acquired while the brain was still damaged. This is the power and the beauty of neuroplasticity, the brain s amazing ability to change and heal. It has revolutionized the treatment of adults who suffer stroke. Now, for the first time, this remarkable book shows that children with a brain injuryat or near birth can get better, too. These stories of children s recovery and improvements are a revelation surprising, inspiring, and illuminating. They offer real hope for some of the world s most vulnerable children and a better understanding of how the baby brain grows and recovers."

In Sherrington's Loom, Alan McComas provides a historical account of the research that has led to recognition of key mechanisms underlying consciousness. Evidence is assembled from a rich variety of sources--neurological patients, animal behavior, laboratory studies, and especially brain stimulation and recording in humans and animals. Among the remarkable advances in the field has been the ability to identify nerve cells in the human brain that store memories of specific people, places, and objects. In addition to dealing with the issue of "free will," the book assembles the information into possible working models for sensations, intentions, and actions. McComas concludes by considering the possibility of consciousness in artificially intelligent systems.

A Compendium Of Classic And Postmodern Novel Summaries

This book is comprised of a compendium of summaries from all novels that I have read for almost twelve years. Obviously, the summaries have been documented on my blog since 2016, and seemingly, in my opinion, it is better bundled in a book form since the statistic views show that the classic fictions are those among most read, so I rose to comply with that demand. The purpose for which I devote myself to compose 85 summaries is to provide quick reading for novel readers and students. Numerous genres are presented because I am quite concious those will bequeath you an imaginative horizon. As a work of art, many of them transcend their expiatory aspects. And still more important to us than scientific significance and literary worth is the inspirational impact those novels have on serious readers. Finally, happy reading and I hope you will find this book useful.

Last Man Standing. Seven seconds. That's all it took for Web London to lose everything: his friends, his team, his reputation.

Coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together. To do so, he must discover why he was the one man who lived through the ambush – and find the only other person who came out of the alley alive . . . a ten-year-old boy who has since disappeared. Acting on his instincts, Web believes he knows where the killer will strike next. Only this time, he may not survive the attack.

As we travel this land, we plant seeds and make deposits in others. Whether intentional or unintentional or whether positive or negative we all leave something behind for this life or the next. These seeds are of our most inner being that impact people we come across on life´s journey. And just like a seed for a garden, where it´s planted may determine how or if it grows. As Gods most prized work, we all have a seed of greatness inside of us. It is my endeavor by writing this book to inspire, encourage, uplift and enlighten as you look into how my life have evolved by the extraordinary events that has taken place in my life. My prayer has been for God to bless me to be a blessing to others. With this book my prayers have been answered. This is the flower in my life and although at time´s writing this book has been painful as I recall certain events, as we tend to a garden we prune, we pick and we prod but when we are done we admire our good work and God´s beauty as He has designed. It is my duty to write this book and knowing someone will see how I was able to get up from being kicked down and by the grace of God, I was able to rise from the ashes and cling to a hope that is sound, solid and sure. Perhaps someone will be inspired to look deep within and pick up their bed, rise up and walk. As I look back over where I´ve come from, I can say without swaying that I truly have No Regrets.
