My name is Dr. Shai Azoulai. I am a cognitive neuroscientist who specializes in perception, and for most of my life I have been fascinated by one question. 

What does it mean to deeply understand something?

I found it intriguing that this seemingly simple question often touches on complex topics across many different disciplines including biology, information theory & consciousness.

As I pursued an answer I earned PhDs in both Cognitive Science & Psychology as well as a BS in Computer Science that focused on Artificial Intelligence.

While I certainly don’t have all of the answers, I do have a strong desire to share what I’ve learned along the way.

My hope is that this can act as a starting point for anyone seeking to gain a better understanding of themselves, their mind, and how they make sense of the world around them.
