Forget about life-work-balance. A new generation of drugs promises unlimited increases in productivity without the need for rest or sleep. “Brain doping” is the latest trend among high flyers. Pharmaceutical companies are developing pills that increase mental capability, stimulate desire, and heighten the mood. A meaningful life full of happiness and success – without side effects. The industry hopes for fantastic profits if the pretty pills become socially acceptable. Are we at the dawn of a new era, in which cosmetic neurology is an everyday phenomenon?
