Baroness Susan Greenfield CBE, is a British scientist, writer, broadcaster and member of the House of Lords. Specialising in the physiology of the brain, Professor Greenfield researches the impact of 21st century technologies on the mind, how the brain generates consciousness and novel approaches to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. She has written a range of non-specialist books on issues relating to the mind and brain for the general reader.

Through a series of books and lectures she has explained how the brain works to a non-scientific audience. She has also had her own TV-series on BBC, sharing her knowledge. When we last met, in May this year, she was adding yet another element to her career, as she was about to build a new company working to find cures for neurodegenerative disorders, Skymoen says.
