She is probably best known for her research work on cognition and depression, cognitive enhancement using pharmacological treatments, neuroethics and early detection of Alzheimer's disease. She has over 300 publications covering these topics in various journals including Science, Nature Neuroscience, The Lancet, British Medical Journal, Archives of General Psychiatry, American Journal of Psychiatry, Biological Psychiatry, The Journal of Neuroscience, Brain, Psychopharmacology, and Psychological Medicine.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Thisis probably the worst example of dangerous pseudoscience that I rtle ead in years. The book actually contains very little information on actual decision making under cognitive enhancement drugs. All the scientific information in the book is superficial. The main point of this book is not inform but to advocate the use of these drugs. Actually this looks much like a paid work.
