No more dopamine for you!

If you are a slacker, like me, a day might come when dopamine receptors in your brain will be blocked.

Now, I'm not trying to scare you. I actually think it's a very cool thing. This WIRED article talks about how blocking dopamine receptors will make simians (humans and chimps) work harder and concentrate more on the tasks at hand.

According to the article the rhesus monkeys that were used for the tests stopped trying to guess at what was coming next. They focused more on the actual task instead of the reward.

Pretty cool, there is hope after all.
