Nir Fresco, PI
I am a Senior Lecturer in the Departments of Cognitive & Brain Sciences and Philosophy, at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and the principle investigator of the Epistemology and Cognition Lab. Most of my work is in the foundations of cognitive neuroscience, philosophy of computation and information, and philosophy of mind. One branch of my research focuses on understanding—from informational and computational perspectives—how information processing contributes to our cognitive life. To that effect, I study the explanatory roles computation and information play in cognitive neuroscience. Another branch of research, which is undertaken in the Lab, combines philosophical and behavioural methods to study the relation between automaticity, habit formation, and skill acquisition in humans.
