The plot thickens

Back in October, I posted to my LiveJournal blog about the book-plot potential of mind-enhancing drugs, including brainstorming about how to detect that public figures are using them. (Note that I've moved my active blogging here to Blogger).

Yesterday, Stephanie pointed out an article on this very subject (originally from The Los Angeles Times, cited here in The Ledger)

As the article says:

"In my mind, it [modafinil] may be the first real smart drug," Sahakian said. "A lot of people will probably take modafinil. I suspect they do already."

The age of cosmetic neurology is upon us. Let the made-for-TV movies begin. :)
