MEDIA REVIEWS
"...it does a great job of exploring the impending neuro-revolution and the sometimes scary consequences of neuro-technology. Frank's conclusion is encouraging; with greater self-knowledge you will find that "your personal biology is not a prison, but a lump of playdough you can help form." Susan Blackmore * BBC Focus *
"In this fascinating exploration of the most intriguing brain experiments so far this century, Lone Frank introduces us to a coming neuro revolution. She travels the globe meeting pioneers in psychology, neurology and philosophy to discover how our perceptions of happiness, law, morality and religion will be revolutionised by our understanding of the brain." * New Scientist *
