Some brief overview of book

A groundbreaking work of science that confirms, for the first time, the independent existence of the mindand demonstrates the possibilities for human control over the workings of the brain. Conventional science has long held the position that the mind is merely an illusion, a side effect of electrochemical activity in the physical brain. Now in paperback, Dr Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begleys groundbreaking work, The Mind and the Brain, argues exactly the opposite that the mind has a life of its own.

Dr Schwartz, a leading researcher in brain dysfunctions, and Wall Street Journal science columnist Sharon Begley demonstrate that the human mind is an independent entity that can shape and control the functioning of the physical brain. Their work has its basis in our emerging understanding of adult neuroplasticitythe brains ability to be rewired not just in childhood, but throughout life, a trait only recently established by neuroscientists. Through decades of work treating patients with obsessivecompulsive disorder (OCD), Schwartz made an extraordinary finding while following the therapy he developed, his patients were effecting significant and lasting changes in their own neural pathways.

It was a scientific first by actively focusing their attention away from negative behaviors and toward more positive ones, Schwartzs patients were using their minds to reshape their brainsand discovering a thrilling new dimension to the concept of neuroplasticity. The Mind and the Brain follows Schwartz as he investigates this newly discovered power, which he calls selfdirected neuroplasticity or, more simply, mental force. It describes his work with noted physicist Henry Stapp and connects the concept of mental force with the ancient practice of mindfulness in Buddhist tradition.

And it points to potential new applications that could transform the treatment of almost every variety of neurological dysfunction, from dyslexia to strokeand could lead to new strategies to help us harness our mental powers. Yet as wondrous as these implications are, perhaps even more important is the philosophical dimension of Schwartzs work. For the existence of mental force offers convincing scientific evidence of human free will, and thus of mans inherent capacity for moral choice.
