Is human nature about to change forever? Can we envisage a world where everything we take for granted about ourselves - imagination, free will, love, learning, memory, desire - becomes obsolete? Will science and technology transform not just the way we live, but the way we think and feel? What are the consequences of manipulating our bodies with machinery, our moods with 'smart drugs' and our innate nature with gene therapy? How will what we eat, our relationships, jobs, even the way we fight wars, be transformed by technology?
These and other burning questions about technology that might affect our lifestyles in the future were discussed by Susan Greenfield.
