Description

A highly engaging guided tour through the frontiers of what science knows about how the brain works, how to extend its power and how to fix it when it's broken.' - David Gillespie, author of Sweet Poison and Teen Brain'Tan Le writes with optimism and compassion about the extraordinary evolution of brain technology. Totally inspiring!' - Wendy McCarthy AO Technology now allows us to unlock the amazing potential of the human brain in ways we never dreamt were possible. Join award-winning inventor and entrepreneur Tan Le as she criss-crosses the globe, introducing the brilliant neurotech innovators and neuroscientists at the frontiers of brain enhancement.The NeuroGeneration offers an exciting glimpse into the new brain technologies that sound like science fiction, but are quickly becoming reality. They can enhance our ability to focus and learn, restore lost memories, improve our health, and offer life-changing assistance for people with disabilities. Tan Le shares fascinating stories from people whose lives have been transformed by these inventions: an endurance racer paralysed in a fall, who now walks thanks to neural stimulation and an exoskeleton; a man who drives a racing car with his mind; and a musician who masters Bach faster with headphones that zap his brain with electrical currents. She reveals a dizzying array of technologies in development: helping people whose brains have been impaired by dementia, epilepsy, stroke and injury; providing cranial stimulation to accelerate learning; and designing video games that may replace medications.For anyone working in business, marketing, health, psychology, education, or sport, The NeuroGeneration reveals the extraordinary opportunities that lie before us over the next decade.
