Chemicals and Consciousness

Baroness Susan Greenfield will explore the mood modifying and consciousness changing effects of specific drugs.


Friday 6 May

Consciousness is now attracting the attention of scientists as well as philosophers. Despite the attempts of physicists and mathematicians to model consciousness in artificial systems, there is a need to understand consciousness in a way that caters for the diverse range of chemicals operating in the brain; how else might one explain the various mood modifying and consciousness changing effects of specific drugs?
In this talk, Baroness Greenfield will explore a list of properties that would be required of the physical brain, to cater for the subjectivity of consciousness.

“Like electricity, Greenfield can be shocking, but also illuminating. She is a star turn on the lecture circuit, delivering rapid-fire commentary on the neurochemistry of the brain.” The Guardian.

Director of The Royal Institution, Baroness Greenfield has frequently appeared in television including her BBC series “Brain Story”.
