Product description


"…it does a great job of exploring the impending neuro-revolution and the sometimes scary consequences of neuro-technology.  Frank’s conclusion is encouraging; with greater self-knowledge you will find that “your personal biology is not a prison, but a lump of playdough you can help form.”  Susan Blackmore (BBC Focus)

“In this fascinating exploration of the most intriguing brain experiments so far this century, Lone Frank introduces us to a coming neuro revolution. She travels the globe meeting pioneers in psychology, neurology and philosophy to discover how our perceptions of happiness, law, morality and religion will be revolutionised by our understanding of the brain.” (New Scientist)


"Think that you know yourself? Think again. The coming Neurorevolution will destroy your certainties ― but maybe set you free. Arm yourself. Read this book." (Armand Leroi - author of Mutants and Professor of Evolutionary Developmental Biology at Imperial Col)

"Riveting. Lone Frank has selected the most intriguing issues currently engaging scientists and philosophers, and presented them in a way that will engage anyone who possesses the organ she writes about." (Rita Carter - author of Mapping the Mind and Multiplicity)
