Research doesn’t sleep and neither do we! We’re always looking for new ways to contribute to discussions on topics such as synesthesia, savant syndrome, blindsight and deaf hearing, color perception and action. We’ve been fortunate to publish our ideas in journals such as Analysis, Analytic Philosophy, Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Cognitive Science, Consciousness and Cognition, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Journal of Philosophy, Mind & Language, Neurocase, Noûs, Philosophers’ Imprint, Philosophical Papers, Philosophical Psychology, Philosophical Studies, The Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophy & Phenomenological Research, Synthese, and The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, among many other places.

Feel free to read through some of our work listed below. Got any questions? Have a suggestion for future research. Let us know!
