The Wellcome Lecture: ‘Chemistry of consciousness: Fantasy or reality?’

Baroness Greenfield addresses the question of what consciousness actually is and also explores how the brain generates consciousness.

In addition to this she looks into whether you can indeed talk about a chemistry of consciousness and uses neuroscience to investigate how the brain generates consciousness. She aims to show that science can assist in our understanding of consciousness.

This lecture was the Wellcome Lecture, given in memory of Professor Robert H S Thompson.
