At the heart of cognitive enhancement is the study of the brain as a whole.

Here we cover topics that answer the question "How does this work?"  Things like memory, neurotransmitters, and what goes on inside aging brains.

Otherwise, scroll down and enjoy...

The importance of memory

Memory is not just a curiosity. Memory is central to our existence — and our ability to predict the future.

Virtual Reality

Can we get more out of virtual reality than just games? And what’s happening in our brains during a virtual experience?

Know Your Neurotransmitters: Acetylcholine

It’s high time we covered acetylcholine — the most plentiful neurotransmitter in the body.  And our Know Your Neurotransmitters series continues with the best guest possible to talk to us about acetylcholine.

Sleep and Light Therapy

We know about the detrimental effects of light on our sleep — but how we can harness light in a positive way, for alertness, mood, and our Circadian rhythms?

Alcohol Use Disorder

Social lubricant. Addictive evil. Between these extremes there’s a sea of alcohol.

Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness

Jesse talks to the authors of the new book “Stealing Fire” about the widespread use of altered states (achieved through many different means) to achieve heightened performance.

Animal brains

What makes human brains special? How do animal brains compare to our own?

The Future of Personalized Medicine

Marijuana isn’t the first thing you think of to fight off aging. But studies hint that low-dose cannabinoids might be just the thing to protect against brain inflammation.

The mind is a powerful thing — it can heal the body or harm the body.
