ICYMI: Tango As Medicine, What Stress Looks Like And Your Brain On 'Food Porn'
ICYMI features what HuffPost editors are reading this week. This week, we teared up while re-reading this year's recipient of the Hillman Prize -- a long-form profile of an abortion doctor who treats women in Mississippi.

Will 'Smart Drugs' Soon Sweep the Nation?
If you haven't heard of the term "biohacking", you may already be being outcompeted by those who have. A biohacker has generally been defined as someone who aims to gain control over their own biology. Many biohackers are now choosing to take brain enhancing substances -- or "nootropics" -- that supposedly allow you to tailor your brain to fit your needs, rather than letting your brain control you. In fact, so many tech gurus and entrepreneurs swear by smart drugs that it prompted CNN to run the story "Are Smart Drugs Driving Silicon Valley?" Some of us with an unrelenting hunger for succes...

Experts Weigh In On The Ethics Of Using Brain-Enhancing Drugs
By: Tanya Lewis Published: March 26, 2015 08:00am ET Boosting a person's smarts through drugs or electrical or magnetic stimulation of the brain is becoming an increasingly widespread practice. Now, bioethicists are weighing in, saying that while such cognitive enhancement is neither bad nor good, it deserves more research. In the past, "there have been many arguments that suggest one should take an ethical stance for or against cognitive enhancement" of healthy individuals, said Amy Gutmann, chairwoman of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, which released the second part of a...
