Summary
In this extraordinary, often mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience, Dr. Kaku looks toward the day when we may achieve the ability to upload the human brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; project thoughts and emotions around the world on a brain-net; take a "smart pill" to enhance cognition; send our consciousness across the universe; and push the very limits of immortality
Summary
An authoritative survey of current groundbreaking research into the human mind reveals how top international laboratories have innovated unique technologies for recording profound mental capabilities and enabling controversial opportunities in the field of cognition enhancement
