Cognitive Enhancement

Cognitive Enhancement

Playing tracks by

Arcade Fire, )The Talking Heads and The Tragically Hip.

This week, Chris Dolega takes us on a trip into the brain beyond the brain. How long have we been using technology to engineer our own thinking? What are the techniques that we will use to reshape our minds in the future?

This is the world of cognitive enhancement--you already live here so you might as well get to know your way around.

For more on cognitive enhancement, here's a great article from The Atlantic about Allen Buchanan author of "Better Than Human": http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/02/why-cognitive-enhancement-is-in-your-future-and-your-past/252566/
