The private life of the brain : emotions, consciousness, and the secret of the self by Susan Greenfield( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rich in insights from such diverse realms as pharmacology, psychology, neuroscience and everyday life. The Private Life of the Brain traces the life of the mind and reveals how our childhood experiences, intense emotions like fear and euphoria, and the drugs that induce these extreme feelings dramatically affect who we are. She argues that emotions exist at the core of our consciousness to a greater or lesser degree, depending on how much we are using - or losing - our mind at any given moment."--Jacket
Mind change : how digital technologies are leaving their mark on our brains by Susan Greenfield( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Google. Facebook. Twitter. Repeat. We live in a world unimaginable even a few decades ago, one like no other in human history. It's a parallel world where we can be on the move in the real world, yet always hooked into an alternative time and place. And although it's a two-dimensional world of sight and sound, it offers instant information, connected identities, and constant novelty. In this world, our screen technologies are increasingly where we work, where we unwind, where we relieve our boredom and where we learn. The subsequent transformation in how we live and think is a vitally important issue, perhaps even the most important issue of our time. When toddlers are given iPads, and adults spend ten hours a day staring at a screen, can we afford to assume that our brave new screen technologies are harmless tools? Blending a wide range of scientific studies, news events, and cultural criticism with brio and verve, Mind Change presents an incisive snapshot of the global 'now.' Greenfield examines how the dawn of the Digital Age has already altered our cultural landscape, fueled an epidemic of oversharing, and transformed how we learn, remember and spread information -- and how these innovations are changing our physical brains. A warning cry, a shot across the bow, and a call to action, Mind Change explores the social, cultural and physiological ramifications of our new digital lifestyle"--
The human brain : a guided tour by Susan Greenfield( Book )

39 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this accessible book, you will first view the brain with nothing but the naked eye, then learn about the different regions of the brain and their functions and relevance to the operation of the organ as a whole. Then Dr. Greenfield will show you the various problems inherent in the localization of the different brain functions through the application of simple, but familiar, processes like movement and vision. After this, you are ready to examine the brain under the microscope. You will see how brain cells communicate with each other and how such communication can be dramatically modified by drugs. Dr. Greenfield will also lead you on a step-by-step journey as the brain develops from a single fertilized egg to a fully developed organ, constantly changing as a result of experience to create a truly unique individual. Finally, you will explore the mysterious topic of memory - how it works and where it occurs in the brain."--Jacket
Mindwaves : thoughts on intelligence, identity, and consciousness by Colin Blakemore( Book )

Journey to the centers of the mind : toward a science of consciousness by Susan Greenfield( Book )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Journey to the Centers of the Mind, neuroscientist Susan Greenfield offers an intriguing, unifying theory of consciousness that encompasses both phenomenological mental events and physical aspects of brain function. Using information gathered from clues in animal behavior, human brain damage, computer science, neurobiology, and philosophy, Greenfield offers a "concentric theory" of consciousness, and shows how certain events in the brain correspond to our qualitative experience of the world. Demonstrating the ways in which we can interpret the experience of consciousness in terms of interactions among neurons, she explores how much we can learn by continuing to find the links between our physical and mental inner worlds

Brain story : unlocking our inner world of emotions, memories, ideas and desires by Susan Greenfield( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...In this highly readable and often mind-boggling tour through the brain's workings, Susan Greenfield brings the reader up to date on the latest theories and controversies of neuroscience. Drawing together many different strands of research, she tackles head-on the questions that have baffled philosophers and scientists since antiquity. Where are memories stored? Are our brains a product of nature or nurture? Will we ever build thinking robots? And are free will and consciousness nothing more than illusions produced by the subconscious mind?...."
Tomorrow's people : how 21st century technology is changing the way we think and feel by Susan Greenfield( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Tomorrow's People acclaimed neuroscientist Susan Greenfield shows that, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, we are standing on the brink of a mind makeover more cataclysmic than anything in our history. The science and technology that are already at the heart of our lives may soon transform not just the way we live but also the way we think and feel. And as we learn to appreciate the dynamism and sensitivity of our brain circuitry the prospect of directly tampering with the very essence of our individuality becomes increasingly likely." "Here Susan Greenfield imagines life in the future: a world free of pain and disease, where we can manipulate our bodies with machinery, our moods with 'smart drugs' and our innate nature with gene therapy. She explores a world where what we eat, our relationships, jobs, even the way we fight wars will be transformed by technology; where 'home' becomes a blur of artificial images, sounds, textures and smells; where any other reality is unnecessary. In this virtual realm of 'dreams and shadows' the notion of our individual selves may in fact be obliterated entirely."--BOOK JACKET

Greenfield argues persuasively that our individuality is under the microscope as never before.

The larger part is ruled by instinct and pleasure: they are ageless, beautiful yet wholly dependent on technology designed by previous generations to sustain them. Having no social structure or self-consciousness to speak of, to the minority they are simply known as the Others. But into this unmarked, timeless community walks Fred, the first visitor from a far-off land. His people are the N-Ps, governed by logic, revolted by the mindless, unfettered sollipsism of the Others. In all respects a model N-P, as Fred conducts

Each of us has a unique, subjective inner world, one that we can never share directly with anyone else.

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

Dr. Susan Greenfield considers past attempts to explain emotions in terms of brain areas-and then asserts that the answers actually lie in the function of neurotransmitters. Research indicating that battlefield terror can actually alter the brain's structure is also discussed

In this program, Dr. Greenfield seeks to understand the human body's most remarkable phenomenon--and explains why the existence of each mind's private world of experiences and feelings is actually more incredible than the fact that life on earth evolved at all. The case of Graham Young, who lost his right-side vision in both eyes and yet is still able to process that visual information, adds support to her thesis
