MindBrains Interviews

Short Interviews with few distinguished thinkers on cognition


“Interviews with active researchers may provide those considering research in the field with views about what motivated others to carry out such activity and how they prepared to do so. For this reason, I responded to Sumitava Mukherjee request to ask me about my research motivations and the website allows those interested to access my interview and those of other researchers.  I sincerely hope this will be helpful in giving users a useful entry into the research world.”

– M.I. Posner, Professor Emeritus, Oregon University.

Our minds and brains are complex. MindBrains Interviews series features few top researchers and thinkers worldwide who work on mind, brain, and behaviour by bringing their personal messages to you in small packages so that everybody can know more.

Common questions

Q: Who are the researchers who are featured in the MindBrains list of thinkers?

A: There is no specific rule we follow. As we come across good researchers and when others nominate somebody, we wish to request the researcher for being featured. If the person agrees, we add that person in our list. An important deciding factor is publications in good peer reviewed journals or being involved with great research either focused on society or on advancing basic research. They can be at any level of their career including independent researchers/consultants. However, any decision we take remains final.

Q: Who next?
