People who become vision-impaired in childhood or adulthood can attest to the concept of neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to adjust and be "rewired" as they must learn new skills. A man who introduced that concept, Dr. Norman Doige, returns to the long-running CBC series The Nature of Things with fascinating stories of helping the brain itself to heal. In "The Brain's Way of Healing", Doige meets people all over the world whose lives have been changed by non-invasive methods that have improved debilitating brain conditions. I loved writing and producing description to help illuminate the concepts and the dedication of the scientists and patients dealing with everything from Parkinson's to severe autism to massive brain injuries. Catch it in Canada on CBC-TV October 27 at 8pm eastern, and afterward on the CBC-TV app with on-demand Described Video.
