Join us for an exclusive chance to hear from Baroness Susan Greenfield CBE, a leading neuroscientist, broadcaster, writer and member of the UK House of Lords.
In ‘Consciousness: A Scientific Perspective’, the Baroness will take examples from daily life, such as waking up, walking the dog, dreaming and experiencing pain, to explore how objective brain mechanisms transform into the miracle that is consciousness. Along the way she will share insights into cutting edge neuroscience and her views on our future understanding of brain function.
