About the lab
My lab utilizes a broad spectrum of tools, including EEG, MEG, fMRI, various cognitive tasks. Especially, different projects in the lab apply the neuro-phenomenology approach, utilizing depth phenomenology to guide the neural analysis, in collaboration with proficient contemplative practitioners. Such an approach enables studying highly subtle human experiences, typically overlooked in cognitive science, including: ownership, agency, sense of boundaries, sense of time and space, and sense of minimal versus narrative self.
