Cambridge Neuroscientist Dr Barbara Sahakian features in Wellcome Superhuman exhibition

Dr Barbara Sahakian, from the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, is currently featuring in an exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London. Dr Sahakian gives an interview on cognitive enhancing drugs in the exhibition entitled Superhuman, which runs from 19th July to the 16th October 2012. Click here to watch Dr Sahakian in interview. 

Superhuman takes a broad and playful look at our obsession with being the best we can be. Items on display range from an ancient Egyptian prosthetic toe to a packet of Viagra, alongside contributions from artists such as Matthew Barney and scientists, ethicists and commentators working at the cutting edge of this most exciting, and feared, area of modern science.
