Policy and Politics of Cognitive Enhancement

  • Robert H. Blank


The chapter opens with an overview different perspectives that guide policy options that are available to policy makers to regulate research, marketing and individual use of CE technologies. As noted above, while all of these potential enhancement techniques elicit the same broad social policy concerns, they (especially the physical interventions) di er widely in efficacy, potential usage and risk; and this must be recognized in efforts to regulate their use. The role of the public and experts in CE and difficulties of getting it on political agendas are also discussed.
