Interest in techniques to control the brain and thereby improve its function has surged, yet how realistic are these expectations and what are the ethical implications?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Professor Linden brings a wide-ranging thoughtful approach to the story of brain control. The reader is competently and carefully guided through the complexities of brain anatomy, brain function and research techniques, such as brain imaging and stimulation, to appreciate fully the potential and the possible risks of directly 'interfering with' brain function. Far from just being the realisation of dystopic science fiction, such as portrayed in Michael Crichton's Terminal Man, brain control turns out to be a technology that gives patients a chance to take control of their own brains. An exciting and readable introduction to a topic that will increasingly gather importance over the next decade.' Klaus Ebmeier, University of Oxford, UK

'Prof. D. Linden, one of the leading experts on brain stimulation and neurofeedback and a pioneer in the field, provides a clear, balanced and scientifically sound overview of brain stimulation and neurofeedback. This book will emerge and remain a milestone and reference for many years to come and will certainly shape and improve our desperate search for more effective outcomes for patients with brain disease and psychological disorders.' Niels Birbaumer, Director of the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioral Neurobiology, University of Tubingen, Germany

'David Linden's work is an accessible and beautifully written introductory book on the past, present and future of the technologies of brain stimulation and brain reading. At the end of this fascinating journey, readers cannot help but hope that the author's competence and compassion could serve as a model for anyone working with the growing number of patients who require brain control interventions.' The British Journal of Psychiatry, Andrea E. Cavanna, The Barberry National Centre for Mental Health, UK
