'Perhaps one day in the distant future, the mind will be freed of its bodily constraints and roam among the stars.'

Recording memories, mind reading, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis: no longer are these feats of the mind solely the province of science fiction. As Michio Kaku reveals, not only are they possible, but with the latest advances in brain science and recent astonishing breakthroughs in technology, they already exist.

In The Future of the Mind, Michio Kaku takes us on a stunning, provocative and exhilarating tour of the top laboratories around the world, meeting the scientists who are already revolutionising the way we think about the human brain - and about ourselves.

With the latest advancements in neuroscience, one day we might have a 'smart pill' that instantly enhances our cognition; be able to upload our mind to a computer, neuron for neuron; communicate telepathically with a friend; and even push the very limits of mortality.

All the while illuminating the amazing workings of the brain - still the most complex and mysterious object known in nature - Kaku outlines the likely future for the mind, exploring the ramifications beyond human or even biological life, with fresh insight into what true artificial intelligence and alien consciousness might look like. Like Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future before it, The Future of the Mind is a thrilling ride through the next great scientific revolutions.
