Maui, my cat was the inspiration for MAXyourMIND blog where we focus on neuroscience research for all forms of wellness – mind, body and soul. Maui’s healing journey taught me that with time and persistence retraining the brain is possible.
Watching Maui struggle to walk and his recovery set the stage for my interest in the neuroplasticity of the human brain and how our our thoughts and behavior actually change the structure and neuro-connectivity in the brain. When I was a practicing psychotherapist and working with in-patients in a hospital what I learned about neuro-science I taught my clients.
Luckily animals don’t have the ego that gets us humans in trouble. Animals with “disabilities” prove time and time again that living life, rather than bemoaning what they lack, is yet another important lesson.
