My primary goal is to promote discussion, skepticism, empiricism, and outright rejection of things that are labeled “certain”. It is my opinion that my goals in creating this blog are in line with what used to be considered the “philosophy of science.”
This website is a reflection of my opinions about things that I am interested in. Luck for me, I am doing research in the field where I have the most difficulty in life, Sleep (or lack there of), attention, self-control, and their interactions with the brain. I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at Saint Louis University, seeking a degree in Experimental Psychology with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience. All that being said, I don’t know what “cognitive” or “neuroscience” mean necessarily, however, my academic training as taught me it is easier to ask questions about what science does not know than to provide explanations of complex known phenomenon.
If you are interested in contacting me for questions about research, collaboration, etc. I will happily respond via email with a copy of my curriculum vitae and appropriate resources to verify my “qualifications”. Hopefully, if you read the first part of this page, you will have recognized that no one needs to be qualified to have an opinion, and my formal education has much less to do with “my opinions on the way things are” than does my anecdotal experience.
TLDR: Don’t read blogs for science, criticisms of my opinions are encouraged.
