Can you really rewire an adult brain? In Override, Caroline Williams goes on a mission to find out. Volunteering herself as a guinea pig for top neuroscientists, Williams travels the world testing out brain training techniques that promise to affect real change: from improving on weaknesses such as her limited attention span, tendency to worry, and poor navigation skills, to more mysterious areas such as creativity and the perception of time. From high-tech brain stimulation to meditation, adding bolt-on senses, and retraining stress response, Override is an intimate, fascinating journey into discovering what neuroscience can do for us - and what it can't.
