Philip Jaekl

I studied Cognitive Neuroscience. I obtained my PhD at York University in Toronto and have gone on to do Postdoctoral work in Barcelona (at Pompeu Fabra) and in Rochester, NY (at the University of Rochester).

My research is in a relatively new subfield – Multisensory integration. It concerns the neurophysiological interaction of signals from different sensory systems that affects how we perceive and experience the world around us. Some of my recent work has been featured in Scientific American and BrainDecoder.

Spirit // Matter is a vehicle for me to convey recent scientific discoveries and offer critique and views on current scientific frontiers. So get that chin in hand and raise those eyebrows!
