Summary This book covers recent advances in the neural technology that produces enhancements for brain function. It addresses a broad range of neural phenomena occurring in the brain circuits for perception, cognition, emotion and action, representing the building blocks of the behavior and mind. Augmentation of brain function is achieved using brain implants for recordings, stimulation and drug delivery. Alternative methods include employing brain-machine interfaces, as well as noninvasive activation of certain brain areas. Existing methods of brain augmentation are evaluated, and new approaches are introduced. Brain circuitry and neuronal mechanisms that are candidates for augmentation are discussed. This volume provides novel insights into brain disorders, and new devices for brain repair. Information in this book is relevant to researchers in the field of neuroscience, engineering, and clinical practice. Philosophical and ethical implications of brain augmentation are also addressed. "This impressive book by leading experts in neuroscience and neuroengineering lays out the future of brain augmentation, in which the human mind and machine merge, leading to a rapid exponential growth of the power of humanity." - Ray Kurzweil "This book employs a holistic approach in covering the recent advances in the fields of neuroscience, neuroinformatics, neurotechnology and neuro-psycho-pharmacology. Each chapter of the book covers major aspects of modern brain research in connection with the human mind and behavior, and is authored by researchers with unique expertise in their field. " - Ioan Dumitrache "This book presents compelling perspectives on what interactive neuroscience will look like in the future, delving into the innovatory ideas of a diverse set of neuroscientists, and speculating on the different ways computer chips implanted in the brains of humans can effect intelligence and communication." - György Buzsáki
