Mind-enhancing drugs likely to be developed over next 20 years

The New Zealand Herald : Technology and Science : Mind-enhancing drugs likely to be developed over next 20 years.

“We are on the verge of developments which could possibly move us into a world where we could take a drug to help us learn, think faster, relax, sleep more efficiently or even subtly alter our mood to match that of our friends,” Sir David said.
“This would have implications for individuals, and could lead to a fundamental change in the way we behave as a society,” he said.

Similar to the stuff I heard Eric Kandell talk about at Auckland Uni last year-the use of particular chemical compounds to enhance long-term memory.
