Michael Merzenich, On the Brain

I've been exploring a site called On the, a blogsite hosted by Michael Merzenich:
Dr. Michael (Mike) Merzenich is the Francis Sooy Professor in the Keck Center for Integrative Neurosciences at the University of California at San Francisco. In parallel with the landmark studies of his UCSF team in the science of neuroplasticity, he has worked with other scientists, medical specialists, psychologists, engineers and other technical specialists to develop training programs based on this science, and designed to improve the behavioral capacities and neurological abilities of children and adults in need of help. Almost a million individuals have now benefited from the use of these programs.

On his site I found a video about a man with traumatic brain injury whose cognitive function became improved via some mental exercises. I was impressed - thought I'd share it here.
