New Big Picture app debates the brain

The chemistry of love, smart drugs and brain-melting technology... Join the debate!

Is being in love just a chemical reaction?

Is technology harming our brains?

Is it OK to enhance brain function with cognitive enhancers or 'smart drugs'?

These are just some of the areas of debate presented in a new, free app from the Big Picture which explores social and ethical questions about the human brain. Click on the image below to see the app in action:


The app is designed to be interactive: students can vote and share their views with peers. There is also an area for teachers, which gives suggestions for how it can be used in the classroom.

The app can be accessed on any computer, laptop or mobile device, and the iOS version can be downloaded onto an iPad.
