Mon 19 December 2016, 18:30 – 20:30 GMT
On Monday, 19th December accalaimed neurologist Susan Green field will join to discuss her new book, A Day in the Life of the Brain.
Greenfield asks how a tangle of brain cells can conjure up a rich experience on consciousness - what really happens in our heads when we savour a meal, spend time outdoors or stare at a screen? This bold new book provides a thought-provoking analysis of universal human experience
