the latest in brain research.

The human brain is the most complex organism there is. It causes all sorts of crazy, and even the brilliant people of the world are still trying to fully understand it. Michio Kaku's The Future of the Mind is pretty mind blowing, pun intended. In the past few decades, science fiction books are coming to life in laboratories all over the country. Kaku shares the discoveries in neuroscience that could lead to new capabilities in this century such as telepathy, telekinesy, and literally uploading memories INTO the brain. He goes a tad Ray Bradbury on us when considering the implications of a world filled with even more intelligent machinery than we have now. It's honestly kind of wild to think about. Kaku and his impeccable research does an excellent job of opening even the simplest minds to the times that are a changing.
