ADVISORY: CAP’s Moreno to Discuss the Newest Edition of Mind Wars: Brain Science and the Military in the 21st Century

Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday May 8th, the Center for American Progress will host author and CAP Senior Fellow Jonathan Moreno to discuss the newest edition of his book Mind Wars. The first book of its kind, Mind Wars covers the ethical dilemmas and bizarre history of cutting-edge technology and neuroscience developed for military applications. As Moreno discusses the innovative Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the role of the intelligence community and countless university science departments in preparing the military and intelligence services for the 21st century, he also charts the future of national security.

Fully updated and revised, this edition features new material on deep-brain stimulation, neuro hormones, and enhanced interrogation. With in-depth discussions of "psyops" mind control experiments, drugs that erase both fear and the need to sleep, microchip brain implants and advanced prosthetics, and super soldiers and robot armies, Mind Wars may read like science fiction or the latest conspiracy thriller, but its subjects are very real and are changing the course of modern warfare.
