Our brain is the source of everything that makes us human: language, creativity, rationality, emotion, communication, culture, politics. The neurosciences have given us, in recent decades, fundamental new insights into how the brain works and what that means for how we see ourselves as individuals and as communities. Now - with the help of new advances in nanotechnology - brain science proposes to go further: to study its molecular foundations, to repair brain functions, to create mind-machine interfaces, and to enhance human mental capacities in radical ways. This book explores the convergence of these two revolutionary scientific fields and the implications of this convergence for the future of human societies. In the process, the book offers a significant new approach to technology assessment, one which operates in real-time, alongside the innovation process, to inform the ways in which new fields of science and technology emerge in, get shaped by, and help shape human societies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The text goes through a review of new technology relating to biophysical, electronic, neurophysiology, and cognitive enhancement pertaining to this burgeoning field of Nanotechnology as relating to brain research. The authors do an excellent job on discussing some of the moral, ethical, and religious discussions now being made with reference to this subject. ... I highly recommend this book to all audiences." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, November, 2013)
