I have received extensive training in philosophy, experimental psychology and neuroscience (fMRI). I use these disciplines and their methods to investigate the psychological profile of, and functional relationship between, the brain’s default mode (DMN) and task positive networks (TPN). The work with which I am involved suggests that the DMN is associated with various sorts of social-emotional and motivational cognition, whereas the TPN is associated with various sorts of non-social cognition, including analytic and scientific reasoning. My graduate work, in the Organizational Behavior (OB) PhD program at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), aims to translate this work into organizational behavior and cognition.
