A Day in the Life of the Brain
Baroness Susan Greenfield outlines her profound yet straightforward theory about how each of us experiences and evolves an entirely personal view of the world. In this astute analysis of how consciousness works, she traces a single day in the life of the brain, exploring subjectivity, the act of dreaming, the shift from sleep to full consciousness, sensitivity to colour, the laying down of memory, the qualities of a creative mind and even the mental effects of dementia and depression. With neuroscientist Daniel Glaser.
Daniel Glaser is Director of Science Engagement at the Royal Institution, was a Winston Churchill Fellow in 2019 and Founding Director of Science Gallery London. He was previously Head of Engaging Science at the Wellcome Trust responsible for all external funding for public engagement and the arts.
