Often, our curiosity pulls us into covering subjects that are interesting to brain aficionados, but don’t fit neatly into any one of our “normal” categories — things like futurism, bioethics and emotional intelligence.

And check out the list below for the best of the rest...

new-normal

You, me, and everyone we know, falls under this impending, theoretical threat.  Even those of us who are using cognitive enhancers (those currently available) — we’re still a part of the “home team,” compared to those upgraded rascals from 2020, or 2030, or 2045, and whatever brain-enhancers they’re  using to eventually disenfranchise the biological “normals.”

Slippery-Slopes-smart-drug-addiction

Could a smart drug “habit” be a gateway to addiction? What’s the difference between addiction and physical dependence? What’s going on with the brain’s dopaminergic systems during addictive behavior?
