A Day in the Life of The Brain Review in Event Mag, Mail on Sunday
“Without consciousness, life would be pretty much the same as death” writes Susan Greenfield. It is consciousness that makes our daily life such a rich experience. But what, exactly, do we mean by the term? To explore this question, Greenfield makes a detailed study of 24 hours in the life of a human brain, lodged within the skull of a very ordinary chap who wakes up, eats breakfast, goes to work in an office- then returns to the home he shares with his depressed wife, uncommunicative teenage son, and demented mother-in-law. It is a prosaic scenario yet it provides Greenfield a framework within which to examine what happens in our brains when we are bored, listening to music, and experiencing pleasure, anxiety, or depression. This book offers an intriguing glimpse into enigma of our inner lives" Jane Shilling, Mail on Sunday
