My personal opinion of the movie:
Plot Summary: This books follows Eddie Morra who uses a new designer drug (NZT) to boost his brain power. He is a total losers until he uses the drug. After the first dose, he starts and finishes writing a book (supposedly a masterpiece). Later he gets hired at a financial firm to make tons of money. He draws the attention of a business tycoon who first asks as a boss, but turns out to be after Morra’s supply of NZT as withdrawal produces death. Ultimately, Morra is so smart that he is able to taper off the drug without suffering any consequences for his drug use.
Psychology related-movie myths
1. Humans only use 20% of their brains.
Does it correspond with research findings? (circle one) Yes No
Research author’s name(s) and year Consonni et al (2013)
2. Stimulant drugs make you smarter.
Does it correspond with research findings? (circle one) Yes No
Research author’s name(s) and year Wood (2011)
3. Withdrawal from certain drugs can cause death.
Does it correspond with research findings? (circle one) Yes No
Research author’s name(s) and year Fullwood et al. (2013)
My personal opinion of the movie: I hated this movie. It’s based on the incorrect assumption that humans only use a small part of their brain. It adds insult because it’s ending basically endorses drug use with the idea that you can use them and only experience the benefits with no sides effects and no withdrawal (if you are smart enough). I was left wondering what drug company/cartel sponsored this flick.
