Brianna Morseth is a graduate student in Cognition, Perception, and Cognitive Neuroscience through the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at UCSB with overlapping coursework in Philosophy and Religious Studies. My research interests include the areas of convergence between Buddhist contemplative practice and cognitive science. My current projects involve examining the interplay between concepts of self and mindfulness as well as investigating the effects of meditation on the default mode network and self-referential processing.
