Could you say in other words the underlined:
"And years from now, he says, we may head to a real-time brain-imaging center the way we go to the fitness center today, and buff up parts of our brain that improve performance, memory and even intelligence. Now, that would be a real no-brainer."
What do you mean to say by:
'real-time' ( I know what it means, but what do you intend it to mean with regard to CAT scans/electromagnetic imaging?)
no-brainer: I can't grasp how this follows logically. Do you mean, that if a machine is going to do these things for the person, then the person doesn't have to use their own brain to achieve it??
I don't mean to say anything. I was wandering what it means. I just read it in a Reader's Digest /American, March 2007/. These are the closing lines of an article titled ""Brain Powered".
I have heard it used in house restoration, when looking at the house pre restoration and 'doing the sums'(adding up the costs involved in the purchase and restoration), means that it is a no brainer situation, ie you dont have to be an Einstein to figure out that you cannot lose, moneywise.
Means you are on a sure fire situation/a winner
Hope this helps
