Postdoctoral Fellow and EMRG Lab Coordinator
Vicente Raja is a postdoctoral fellow of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy at Western University (Canada). His research lies at the intersection of philosophy, cognitive science, neuroscience, and the history of the sciences of the mind, and has appeared in venues including Synthese, Frontiers in Neuroscience, Philosophical Psychology, Adaptive Behavior, Cognitive Systems Research, Theory and Psychology, International Journal of Human-Computer Interactions, Minds and Machines, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, and Ecological Psychology. In his theoretical work, he develops a framework for the study of brain-body-environment systems based on ecological resonance. He is also interested in lawful approaches to psychology. His experimental work complements his theoretical work on ecological resonance and combines the use of nonlinear methods and virtual reality or sensory substitution devices to study human and plant behavior.
