Susan Greenfield has been awarded 32 Honorary Degrees from British and foreign universities and in 2000 was elected to an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians. Susan was both an undergraduate and graduate at Oxford University, taking a DPhil in the Department of Pharmacology in 1977. Each of us has a unique, subjective inner world, one that we can never share directly with anyone else. But how do our physical brains actually give rise to this rich and varied experience of consciousness? In this ground-breaking episode, internationally acclaimed neuroscientist Susan Greenfield brings together a series of astonishing new, empirically-based insights into consciousness as she traces a single day in the life of your brain. Greenfield explores how our daily experiences are translated into a tangle of cells, molecules, and chemical blips, thereby probing the enduring mystery of how our brains create our individual selves.
