The Future of Human Brains

Researchers are working on brain chip implants to enhance memory, upload and download information, and communicate with people and things. Nanotechnology will make conventional brain surgery rare. Epigenetics is identifying what turns DNA on and off. Can MRIs tell whether someone is a sociopath or a liar? That's controversial. How about a morning after pill to erase PTSD memories? The advances bring marvelous resources for optimal use and care of our brains. At the same time, the advances are fraught with ethical and political perils.
