In his New York Times Bestseller, THE BRAIN THAT CHANGES ITSELF, Dr. Norman Doidge profiles the story of Cheryl Schiltz. In her late thirties Cheryl entered the hospital for a routine surgery. When she came out, her vestibular system had been destroyed. Without her brain’s capacity for balance Cheryl’s life became unlivable. She could not sit, stand or walk without falling over. Enter Dr. Paul Bach-y-Rita whose groundbreaking work with neuroscience gave Cheryl her balance back -- and her life.
 
On this episode Michele Rosenthal interviews Cheryl Schiltz about how her life changed direction after the initial surgery, plus how it changed again during her work with Dr. Bach-y-Rita and his theory about the plasticity of our senses. Most importantly, Cheryl will explain how her brain was rewired through simple science, the results she’s experienced, plus the benefits of neuroplasticity, your brain’s willingness to change all the time.
 
Michele’s shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life. For more ideas about how to create change you choose, visit www.ChangeYouChoose.com.
