Is the Brain a “Gameable” System?

Nootropic Brain Drugs Rise in Popularity for Today’s Cutthroat Corporate Climbers


From the article:

Andrew started his college graduation day at 6 a.m. with a wakefulness agent called modafinil, sometimes known as Provigil—it was the first time he remembers nootropic brain drugs having such a startling effect. He was juggling family and celebrations along with two ceremonies, engineering in the morning and economics in the afternoon, with a band competition in between, which he won. For 22 waking hours he was happy, alert, firing on all cylinders, oblivious to any fatigue.

This is a pretty interesting article. Somehow though…I don’t think it’s healthy to push your body so hard and not get enough sleep.

Atlas Shrugged

Give it another decade and all these folks tampering with their brains are going to suddenly find them shutting down prematurely from burnout and abuse.
