    Highly topical, stimulating addition to the most important debate of our time (the effects of new technology), by one of the UK's leading neuroscientists.

    In Mind Change, Susan Greenfield discusses the all-pervading technologies that now surround us, and from which we derive instant information, connected identity, diminished privacy and exceptionally vivid here-and-now experiences.

    In her view they are creating a new environment, with vast implications, because our minds are physically adapting: being rewired.

    What could this mean, and how can we harness, rather than be harnessed by, our new technological milieu to create better alternatives and more meaningful lives?

    Using the very latest research, Mind Change is intended to incite debate as well as yield the way forward.

    There is no better person to explain the situation in a way we can understand, and to offer new insights on how to improve our mental capacities and well being.
