  • 2.The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph From the Frontiers of Science (Book Review)
    Doidge takes the reader by the hand and carefully explains that the brain can and does change throughout life.

  • 7.Psychoanalysis and Art: The Artistic Representation of the Parent/Child Relationship (Book Review)
    This book grew out of a conference held in Florence, which focused on parent/child relationships as rendered in art, especially art of the Renaissance. The pleasure in the subject matter shines through most of the papers, which are amazingly erudite and knowledgeable about the art that they attempt to analyze from a variety of psychoanalytic perspectives.
