We are entering the era of the brain supremacy, says writer and researcher Dr Kathleen Taylor. Research funds are pouring into brain research but what does this relatively new science mean for us? Taylor looks at the promise of drugs that could boost our brain power, at the potential for more subtle marketing techniques and even at the prospect of machines that could read our minds. She looks at the science behind these claims and at how scientists look inside the human brain.
Taylor studied at Oxford and Stirling universities and is now a freelance writer and research visitor at the University of Oxford. Her two previous books are Brainwashing and Cruelty.
