"No one has a brain like yours! Why is your brain so special?" Watch this video of prominent neurologist Baroness Susan Greenfield to find out. Baroness Susan Greenfield lectured about her research when she visited Science World 2011. Here she discusses her current hypothesis on how modern technology impacts the brain. In particular she argues that our growing use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter and You Tube as well as video games, is changing our brains. Baroness Greenfield was born in London and is the UK's preeminent female scientist. She has written several books about the brain and is praised for popularising science. She is currently the Fullerian Professor of Physiology, Professor of Synaptic Pharmacology at Lincoln College, Oxford, and was, until recently, the Director of the Royal Institution.
