“Smart Drugs” for all?

The Mail:

Schools will soon have to ensure all pupils have access to brain-enhancing ‘smart drugs’, according to officially funded experts.

They said teachers risk claims of bias against poorer children if they fail to give all pupils the same chance to take a new generation of pills which boost attention, concentration and memory.

Researchers predict that within a generation, cognition enhancing drugs – or ‘cogs’ – will be so advanced that parents and teachers will be able to ‘manipulate biology’ to enhance pupils’ brainpower.

I’m pretty certain we’ve heard some of this stuff before.

You may also find this site which is about the use of performance enhancing drugs of some interest in this context.
