Augmenting Cognition is a rapidly emerging field in neuroscience, concerned with the translation of what is known about cognitive function and dysfunction to engineer approaches to enhance and rehabilitate the brain. Modern medicine has few options to treat those with cognitive deficiencies, and as we learn more about the biology of these conditions, we consider the design of a new class of therapies to restore and augment cognition. This book describes a number of the foundational areas of cognitive enhancement, with chapters devoted to the following subject areas: use of stem cells, savants, post-traumatic stress disorder, deep-brain stimulation, music and dance, virtual reality, role of sleep, longevity, drugs, and the brain-computer interface.
