Michio Kaku, the" New York Times" bestselling author of "Physics of the Impossible" and "Physics of the Future" tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain.
"The Future of the Mind" brings a topic that once belonged solely to the province of science fiction into a startling new reality. This scientific tour de force unveils the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world--all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics--including recent experiments in telepathy, mind control, avatars, telekinesis, and recording memories and dreams. "The Future of the Mind" is an extraordinary, 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.
