Most of my current work is based on our finding that the mutually inhibitory relationship between two large-scale cortical networks, the Task Positive Network (TPN) and the Default Mode Network (DMN), reflects a cognitive tension between Analytic and Empathetic thinking. This hypothesis was inspired by my prior philosophical/theoretical work, and has implications for numerous domains, subdivided below.


Decisive test of the Opposing Domains Hypothesis

TPN vs. DMN reflects Analytic vs. Empathetic Cognition, not External vs. Internal Attention
