Praise for The Future of the Mind,  #1 New York Times Bestseller

“Compelling…Kaku thinks with great breadth, and the vistas he presents us are worth the trip”
The New York Times Book Review
“Intriguing….extraordinary findings…A fascinating sprint through everything from telepathy research to the 147,456 processors of the Blue Gene computer, which has been used to simulate 4.5% of the brain’s synapses and neurons”
“Fizzes with his characteristic effervescence….Fascinating….. For all his talk of surrogates and intelligent robots, no manufactured being could have a fraction of his charisma.”
The Independent
“A mind-bending study of the possibilities of the brain....a clear and readable guide to what is going on at a time of astonishingly rapid change.”
The Telegraph

In this expansive, illuminating journey through the mind, theoretical physicist Kaku (Physics of the Future) explores fantastical realms of science fiction that may soon become our reality. His futurist framework merges physics with neuroscience... applied to demonstrations that “show proof-of-principle” in accomplishing what was previously fictional: that minds can be read, memories can be digitally stored, and intelligences can be improved to great extents. The discussion, while heavily scientific, is engaging, clear, and replete with cinematic references... These new mental frontiers make for captivating reading”
-Publishers Weekly
“Kaku turns his attention to the human mind with equally satisfying results
…Telepathy is no longer a fantasy since scanners can already detect, if crudely, what a subject is thinking, and genetics and biochemistry now allow researchers to alter memories and increase intelligence in animals. Direct electrical stimulation of distinct brain regions has changed behavior, awakened comatose patients, relieved depression, and produced out-of-body and religious experiences… Kaku is not shy about quoting science-fiction movies and TV (he has seen them all)… he delivers ingenious predictions extrapolated from good research already in progress.”                                                                                                                                     
-Kirkus Reviews

“Facts to ponder: there are as many stars in our galaxy (about 100 billion) as there are neurons in your brain; your cell phone has more computing power than NASA had when it landed Apollo 11 on the moon. These seemingly unrelated facts tell us two things: our brains are magnificently complex organisms, and science fiction has a way of becoming reality rather quickly. This deeply fascinating book by theoretical physicist Kaku explores what might be in store for our minds: practical telepathy and telekinesis; artificial memories implanted into our brains; and a pill that will make us smarter. He describes work being done right now on using sensors to read images in the human brain and on downloading artificial memories into the brain to treat victims of strokes and Alzheimer’s. SF fans might experience a sort of breathless thrill when reading the book—This stuff is happening! It’s really happening!—and for general readers who have never really thought of the brain in all its glorious complexity and potential, the book could be a seriously mind-opening experience.”

Praise for Physics of the Future
"[A] wide-ranging tour of what to expect from technological progress over the next century or so.... fascinating—and related with commendable clarity"--Wall Street Journal

"Mind-bending........Kaku has a gift for explaining incredibly complex concepts, on subjects as far-ranging as nanotechnology and space travel, in language the lay reader can grasp....engrossing"--San Francisco Chronicle

"Epic in its scope and heroic in its inspiration"--Scientific American
"[Kaku] has the rare ability to take complicated scientific theories and turn them into readable tales about what our lives will be like in the And just a little bit spooky"--USA Today
Praise for Physics of the Impossible
"An invigorating experience"
-The Christian Science Monitor

“Kaku's latest book aims to explain exactly why some visions of the future may eventually be realized while others are likely to remain beyond the bounds of possibility. . . . Science fiction often explores such questions; science falls silent at this point. Kaku's work helps to fill a void.”—The Economist
“Mighty few theoretical physicists would bother expounding some of these possible impossibilities, and Kaku is to be congratulated for doing so. . . . [He gets] the juices of future physicists flowing.”—Los Angeles Times

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
‘The Future of the Mind’ written by popular physicist Michio Kaku is a great vision about the human future, which unlike usually encountered, is not at all dark, but offers some unimagined and exciting opportunities that already seem almost at our fingertips.

Inside his book this charming scientist whose style makes science so interesting and tempting, provides reader with latest neuroscience research whose discoveries are still considered as a scientific fiction and something that most people with suspicion would consider impossible. Kaku speaks about recording our memories to be stored for future generations to enjoy, telepathy that would help communication problems disappear, taping our dreams that would allow enjoying fantastic worlds even we are awake, mind control of various devices around us, telekinesis and many others extraordinary things that are commonly thought could only be performed by magicians for naive people.

The idea that one day, possible very soon, humans will be able to control things with their mind, that we will be able to upload our memories and knowledge to the super computers or send our emotions and thoughts are things that will not only help people on Earth, but certainly will help further technology research that would allow the spread of the human species throughout the universe. And all these things found inside truly sound amazing, especially when reader on its pages learns many details of the research carried out extremely long and with great successes in laboratories around the world.

Des Wissensstands in der Hirnforschung - dieser Stand und auch die zugehörige Forschung in der Physik etwas weniger spekulativ als bei den Futuristen.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The main argument: Up until 15 to 20 years ago the instruments and methods used to study the brain were still somewhat primitive. Since this time, however, advances in brain-scanning and brain-probing technology have gone into overdrive—as have the computers needed to make sense of the data from these new technologies. The deluge began in the early to mid 1990’s with the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, and it’s more powerful cousin the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) machine, and it hasn’t stopped there. In addition to the MRI and fMRI, we now have a host of advanced sensing and probing technologies from the positron emission topography (PET) scan, to magnetoencephalography (MEG), to near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), to optogenetics, to the Clarity technique, to the transcranial electromagnetic scanner (TES), to deep brain stimulation (DBS) and more. In addition to these new scanning and probing technologies we have also advanced greatly in understanding how genes are expressed in the brain.

The result of these new advances is that we have learned more about the brain and how it works in the past 15 years than in all of history put together. And we are beginning to see real-world applications of this new understanding. For example, in the past decade we have learned to read the brain’s functioning to the point where we can now create rough images and video footage of thoughts and even dreams and imaginings; use the brain to directly control computers, and anything computers can control—including prosthetics (and even have these prosthetics send sensations back to the brain); implant and remove simple memories in the brain; create primitive versions of artificial brain structures; and also unravel at least some of the mysteries of mental illness and disease.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Michio Kaku would not be Michio Kaku if he would not put you on a roller-coaster ride through the universe that is called our brain. The book covers everything and all about the brain, intelligence and consciousness and possible future developments here.
“The Future of the Mind” is presented in 3 Books. Book 1 explains about the mind and consciousness in general. Book 2 is titled “Mind over Matter” and covers 4 topics including telepathy, telekinesis, memory generation and memory enhancement.
Book 3 then is called “Altered Consciousness” and covers everything from dreams, mind control, artificial consciousness, the mind of aliens and so forth. It is nearly impossible to mentions all the interesting facts which Kaku compiles in these three books. It reads something like “all you ever wanted to know about your brain and all the SiFi-movies that come with it”. Sure enough movies and movie characters like Terminator, Matrix, Total Recall and Kubrik’s 2001 Odyssey turn up and many more.
Interesting topics covered are (just a few examples):
• Drugs that make you forget unpleasant memories
• How recalling a certain situation in your mind changes this memory
• Social and legal Issues, when you change memories
• The possibility to implant skills into the brain or to create and upload memories &emotions onto the Internet
• The possibility to boost our intelligence to genius level
• IQ tests, Savants and Super geniuses
• Genetics for Intelligence
• Our dreams and dream research
• Mind Control and the Manchurian candidate
• CIA Mind control experiments, Mental Illnesses, Hallucinations
• Human consciousness and many other things. The eBook was published this year, so it is somewhat up to date.
