    It's time to gather for some fun;
    so lets have thoughts of lots of sun.

    Dr. Jonathan Schooler is a Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of California Santa Barbara.  His research on human cognition explores topics that intersect philosophy and psychology, such as how fluctuations in people’s awareness of their experience mediate mind-wandering and how exposing individuals to philosophical positions alters their behavior.  He is also interested in the science of science (meta-science) including understanding why effects sizes often decline over time, and how greater transparency in scientific reporting might address this issue.
