A Day in the Life of the Brain: The Neuroscience of Consciousness from Dawn till Dusk
War Time, Peace Time, My Time is a charming account of the life of Dorice Greenfield; dancer, wife, mother and now, author.
As screen-based technologies have reshaped our world and become a constant in the lives of young people, we endeavor to examine the impact they are having on their development. Digital, cyber technologies have profoundly changed the way young people think and interact with others and the world around them. As a result, we challenge the assumption that these technologies are an unalloyed good. As parents, educators, scientists and health care professionals, we seek a robust discussion about what kind of people we would like to help our children to become. We are therefore creating this platform for members to express their views on these issues, post papers, and ask for help regarding raising children who are able to thrive in real life – beyond the screens.
A podcast in which Susan Greenfield highlights how the unprecedented use of digital technologies is leaving a mark on our brains.

Mind Change was published on 21st August 2014 by Random House. In Mind Change, Susan Greenfield discusses the all-pervading technologies that now surround us, and from which we derive instant information, connected identity, diminished privacy and exceptionally vivid here-and-now experiences. In her view they are creating a new environment, with vast implications, because our minds are physically adapting: being rewired. What could this mean, and how can we harness, rather than be harnessed by, our new technological milieu to create better alternatives and more meaningful lives? Using the very latest research (up to the end of 2013), Mind Change is intended to incite debate as well as yield the way forward. There is no better person to explain the situation in a way we can understand, and to offer new insights on how to improve our mental capacities and well being.
