THE FUTURE OF THE MIND: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

Kaku's Vulcan Mind Meld


For the first time ever, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high-tech brain scans devised by physicists.

What was once the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, virtual avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.

THE FUTURE OF THE MIND is an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world — all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics brought to you by world-renowned futurist and physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku.

One day we might have a “smart pill” to enhance our cognition; upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a “brain-net”; control computers and robots with our minds; push the limits of immortality, sending consciousness across the universe.

Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future holds, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about “consciousness” and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.

With Dr. Kaku’s deep understanding of modern science and keen eye for future developments, THE FUTURE OF THE MIND is a scientific tour de force — an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience.

Now available in Hardcover, Kindle, Audio CD, and Audible.
