Coming on the heels of exams, this seems particularly relevant.
As a biochem student, I think it’s very interesting to consider the various ways in which we’re beginning to use the knowledge we have about our physiology and genetics to manipulate ourselves.

I’m really interested in other people’s opinions on this one. Would you consider taking Ritalin or other drugs to enhance your mental performance? Why or why not? Comment below!
