Take a fantastic voyage into the inner-workings of the mind in DISCOVER magazine's new special issue, The Brain. This issue explores how technology will help you think, feel, and remember better. You'll also find:

SPECIAL SECTION - Mind & Machine:

  • The US Army wants to arm soldiers with synthetic telepathy so warriors can talk using only their thoughts.
  • Jeff Hawkins on the pitfalls of neuroscience—and inventing the next wave of brain inspired computers.
  • Could you really plug your brain into a crime fighting suit of Iron armor? The comic book fantasy is closer than you think.
  • Advantage: Human. Most computers still struggle to outwit human intelligence in the games we play against them.

The Big Split: You may think you're in charge of your decisions. Surprise: Your brain has a mind of its own.

Images of Alzheimer's: Illustrating the scientific effort to nail down early stages of this terrible disease.

Its interesting, but, basic information. Maybe High School level or less in content and information. Not the normal depth of most of their works.
