Cognitive Enhancement: Pharmacologic, Environmental and Genetic Factors

Shira Knafo, César Venero, César Venero (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Cognitive Enhancement: Pharmacologic, Environmental and Genetic Factors addresses the gap that exists in research on the topic, gathering multidisciplinary knowledge and tools that help the reader understand the basics of cognitive enhancement. It also provides assistance in designing procedures and pharmacological approaches to further the use of novel cognitive enhancers, a field that offers potential benefit to a variety of populations, including those with neurologic and psychiatric disorders, mild aging-related cognitive impairment, and those who want to improve intellectual performance. The text builds on our knowledge of the molecular/cellular basis of cognitive function, offering the technological developments that may soon enhance cognition. Separate sections cover enhancement drugs, environmental conditions, and genetic factors in terms of both human and animal studies, including both healthy/young and aging/diseased individuals. Provides a multidisciplinary knowledge, enabling a further understanding of cognitive enhancement. Offers coverage of the pharmacologic, environmental, and genetic factors relevant to the topic. Discusses cognitive enhancement from the perspective of both healthy and diseased or aging populations. Topics are discussed in terms of both human and animal studies.
