A world-renowned neuroscientist illuminates the science of consciousness by exploring a single day in the life of the brain 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 book, 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. From waking to walking the dog, working to dreaming, 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A provocative pleasure to read. We need researchers like [Susan Greenfield] to push the boundaries if we are to progress toward a solution to what neuroscientists have come to call (with considerable understatement) the hard problem of consciousness -- Clive Cookson * Financial Times *
In A Day in the Life of the Brain, Susan Greenfield shows how the chemistry of consciousness responds to the outside world, and how our lifestyle choices can alter the very structure of our minds -- Rob Kingston, 'Science Books of the Year' * The Times *
Illuminating ... [Greenfield's] avidity as a scientist and thinker is obvious, and even a sceptical reader will be drawn along by her skills as a writer -- Nick Haslam * Australian Book Review *
[Greenfield's] writing is clear, sharp, devoid of difficult jargon and chatty. The brain's complexity comes across vividly, and its achievements are a marvel -- Anil Ananthaswamy * New Scientist *
A vivid glimpse into the brain-stretching difficulty of making advances in brain research * Sunday Times *
An illuminating, engrossing journey * Nature *
Susan Greenfield enthrals and intrigues her readers in equal measure . . . a force of intellect and a force of nature -- John Humphrys
Susan Greenfield is often described as the foremost female scientist in Britain, but she is one of the best of any gender, anywhere, at getting complicated ideas across * Independent on Sunday *
