" 'Thoughts' and 'things' are names for two sorts of object, which common sense will always find contrasted and will always practically oppose to each other."
- William James (1904)
Does ‘Consciousness’ Exist
BMC Lab Members
|Anthony I. Jack, PhD - Principal Investigator|
I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology and extensive training in Philosophy and Neuroscience. I started out doing largely theoretical work on consciousness, but then got interested by the emerging field of brain imaging. I use fMRI to study attention, consciousness and social processing in the brain.

September 2010 - present; Meta-analysis and functional annotation
I am an undergraduate at Case Western Reserve University majoring in Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Sociology. While all of these areas interest me, my focus is on personality disorders, social neuroscience and emotional neuroscience. After I graduate from Case Western, I intend to pursue advanced degrees in forensic psychology and/or personality psychology. Ideally, my future research will utilize neuroimaging within each of these fields.
|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.
