    Aims and Scope


    The Journal of Cognitive Enhancement publishes articles that contribute to a basic understanding of any means (e.g., meditation, video game, smart drugs, food supplements, nutrition, brain stimulation, neurofeedback, physical exercise, music, or cognitive training) aimed at enhancing human perception, attention, memory, cognitive control, and action in healthy individuals. Research on cognitive enhancement has becoming a hot topic given that the recent economic problems of the welfare system, in both the Eastern and Western societies, have boosted the interest in “enhancing” procedures and activities that will make welfare societally more affordable. Moreover, the ideological turn towards individualism in many societies provides  a natural breeding ground for the public interest in procedures and activities that help to express and to further develop individual needs and interests.


    The scope of the journal contributes to a basic understanding of enhancing human performance and creative potential. Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged and welcome.
