Sean Chandler earned his Master’s degree in Psychology in 2021, with a focus on research into our minds, brains, and behavior. He manages the Cognitive Psychophysiology Lab at SFSU and is a full-time professor of research methods, cognitive psychology, and theories of motivation. His research uses a brain imaging technique called electroencephalography (EEG or “brainwaves”) to explore how multimodal sensory inputs are automatically “binded” by neuronal structures and processes to produce our seamless experience of reality. Using magic tricks as an entry point to uncover the mysteries of the mind, his research highlights the ways in which our interpretations of reality can sometimes be misleading and, most importantly, what we can do to overcome potential pitfalls.
