Episode 34 - Jackie Sullivan

On Episode 34, Nick chats with Jackie Sullivan, Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy, a member of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy, and an associate member of the Brain and Mind Institute at the University of Western Ontario, about how a challenging early home life pushed her to study existentialism and philosophy, finding a supportive environment in the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) graduate community at Pitt, putting her PhD on pause to do a Master's in Neuroscience, how scientists exert control in experimental contexts (and how they extrapolate back to the phenomena), why neuroscience is not reductive in practice, the nature of the self in Alzheimer's disease, problems in integrative research, and how we coordinate practices to achieve certain goals in science.
