Our world is about to be revolutionized. The way we see economics, health, and law enforcement will change. Our perception of happiness, advertising, and even morality will be turned upside down. Reporting from the front lines, award-winning writer Lone Frank tracks down the world's top researchers in brain science and bravely volunteers herself in the name of discovery. As she enrolls in a globe-spanning experiment on the moral nature of humanity, endures brain scans to learn the secrets of empathy, and dons a God Helmet to probe the neurological nature of religious experience, her adventures open the door to a plethora of shocking, mind-bending, and frequently comical revelations. An insider's guide to the outermost boundaries of brain science, "Mindfield" offers an uplifting vision of what it means to be human in the new age of the brain.
