Modern science can enhance your alertness, athletic performance, sex drive, health—and even your mind.
“Cognitive enhancement” drugs, also known as “smart pills” can boost attention or memory. However, there’s an ethical debate about human enhancement and its impacts. Some opponents say human enhancements are unfair and not accessible to everyone, others say humans should not “meddle with nature.”
