Susan Greenfield is Professor of Pharmacology at Oxford University, a neuroscientist, writer, and broadcaster. She has been awarded 30 Honorary Degrees from British and foreign universities and heads a multi-disciplinary research group exploring novel brain mechanisms linked to neurodegenerative diseases such Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
In addition, she has published a neuroscientific theory of consciousness,’The Private Life of the Brain’ (2003) and developed a keen interest in the impact of modern technologies on how young people think and feel.
