Present and Future Developments in Cognitive Enhancement Technologies

by Arthur Saniotis


The last two decades has witnessed an exponential growth in neuroscience and molecular biology, which have opened the way for various cognitive enhancements. Current cognitive enhancements are in three main areas; brain-machine interfaces, cosmetic neurology and neurosurgery. With improvements in gene technology, information technology and nanotechnology these three areas will become more widespread. This article will explore current and future cognitive enhancement technologies with a focus on brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) and cosmetic neurology. My aim is to provide the reader an insight into the cutting edge arena of cognitive enhancement technologies.
