The Future of the Brain: The Promise and Perils of Tomorrow's Neuroscience by Steven Rose (2005-04-01)
Brain repair, smart pills, mind-reading machines--modern neuroscience promises to deliver a remarkable array of wonders as well as profound insight into the nature of the brain. But these exciting new breakthroughs, warns Steven Rose, will also raise troubling questions about what it means to be human. In this book, Rose explores just how far neuroscience may help us understand the human brain--including consciousness--and to what extent cutting edge technologies should have the power to mend or manipulate the mind. He illuminates the potential threats and promises of new technologies and their ethical, legal, and social implications.
