Wider use of brain-enhancing drugs suggested

A group of researchers have suggested that increased use of brain-boosting stimulant chemicals may benefit people in many fields of endeavor. Research on the brain’s function is accelerating and a new era of designed cognitive enhancement is upon us, the experts assert.

They cited a survey indicating that a large number of university students already utilize prescription brain-enhancing stimulants for both academic and non-academic purposes.

The scientists suggested that doctors and responsible individuals in other fields evaluate the costs and benefits of encouranging wider use of such drugs. Others warn that the negative side effects of many such drugs outweigh their benefits, however.
