Skip 25 minutes in to last night’s Newsnight for a thought provoking report on the implications of cognitive enhancement. The report begins with the words “we all have had to endure dope smokers who think they’re being profound when really they’re just off their heads“. (Yeah, well up yours too Paxman!) So you may find it a challenge to sit through, especially if you keep on top of neuroscience news (no, there’s nothing new in it), but it certainly provokes interesting debate.
For further reading (or if you feel you can’t endure Paxman shallowly grilling a professor for half a minute and expecting to get a result), you can visit my post’s on the topics of Modafinl and Kevin Warwick’s research on robots controlled using live brain tissue.
