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.

Alcohol Use Disorder

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

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

Our complex biology requires complex, personalized medicine.

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

Han Solo joked that Chewbacca was “always thinking with his stomach.”  Science has shown this to be truer than we ever suspected.

neural recovery

We’re fascinated by the science behind brain tissue regeneration.

We need food to survive. Can we really be “addicted” to something required for survival?

Music and the Brain

Music is something beloved of people everywhere — or at least, 98% of them (no joke – details within). Not surprisingly, music can provoke complex brain responses, both in terms of short term emotion and long-term learning and perceptual awareness. Join doctors Robert Zatorre and Assal Habibi to learn more from the cutting edge of neuroscience and musicology.
