Neuroweapons

ZackLynch.jpgMore neurologisms abound, as Zack Lynch posts about a recent conference on ‘neuroweapons’.

In a previous post, he mentioned concerns about neurowarfare – the use of weapons that target the human central nervous system.

Presumably this means nerve agents, neurotoxins and the like, rather than simply being bashed on the head with a rock (perhaps, the earliest example of a neuroweapon?).

However, the more recent discussions seem to focus on the use of technology and drugs to enhance the cognitive function of soldiers and other military personnel.
