Can you really rewire an adult brain? In theory the answer is ‘yes’, but there’s a problem: no one seems to know exactly how to do it. In ‘Override’, Caroline Williams sets off on a mission to find out. Delving into the latest studies on brain plasticity, which indicate that brain games don’t actually do much to make you smarter, she tries to square that finding with the reality of brain plasticity – that the brain adapts physically as we learn something new. Visiting top neuroscientists in their labs, she volunteers herself as a guinea pig in neuroscience studies, challenging researchers to make real changes to her – functioning, but imperfect – brain.
