Description
NOW A #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Compelling....Kaku thinks with great breadth, and the vistas he presents us are worth the trip" --The New York Times Book Review The New York Times best-selling author of PHYSICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE, PHYSICS OF THE FUTURE and HYPERSPACE tackles the most fascinating and complexnbsp;objectnbsp;in thenbsp;known universe:nbsp; the human brain. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by anbsp;battery ofnbsp;high tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.nbsp; nbsp; THE FUTURE OF THE MIND gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishingnbsp;research being done innbsp;top laboratories around the world--all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics. nbsp;One day we might have a "smart pill" that cannbsp;enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotionsnbsp;around the world on a "brain-net"; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhapsnbsp;even send our consciousness across the universe.nbsp; nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and applies it to providenbsp;fresh insight intonbsp;mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.nbsp;nbsp; Withnbsp;Dr. Kaku'snbsp;deep understanding of modern science and keen eye for future developments, THE FUTURE OF THE MIND is a scientific tour de force--an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience.
