|Brian Hysell - Research Assistant|
May 2010 - present; Meta-analysis and functional annotation
I study Cognitive Science and Computer Science at CWRU as undergraduate majors and time permitting, Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence as minors. I write programs for the lab's Linux-based server to perform or ease data analysis; in particular, I have recently dedicated much time and energy to preparing structural brain images for analysis via Voxel-Based Morphometry. My research interests include computational neuroscience, linguistics, and mood disorders.

I am an undergraduate at CWRU pursuing a minor in Artificial Intelligence and majors in Cognitive Science and Philosophy. Broadly stated, I am interested in the relationship between epistemology, behavior, and the brain. My current research investigates how particular belief systems and thinking styles interact with cognitive and emotional processes.
