Senior Fellow Autumnrose Haroutunian
Autumnrose Haroutunian '10 Explores Phenomenology
“Your body knows something that your mind has forgotten,” says Autumnrose Haroutunian ’10. As one of three 2009-2010 Senior Fellows, Haroutunian is familiarizing herself with a concept known as phenomenology, a philosophical approach to issues of space and embodiment. More specifically, it professes a necessary break from the Cartesian dualism that separates mind and body. By forming a system with the objects of its perception, the body builds a foundation for an inter-subjective experience. Thus the concepts reflected on by the mind are second-order expressions of the world as we live it. More ...

Senior Fellow Leeann Brigham Studying Animal Model of Schizophrenia
From an early age, Leeann Brigham has had an astute fascination for and a deep interest in science. As a child, she recalls playing with mini-microscopes and rock collections and having "an obsession with" the Nancy Drew mystery book series. Like the mystery books she so deeply loved as a child, today, Leeann views neuroscience, her major here at Hamilton, as "the ultimate mystery – asking questions like 'why do we behave the way we do' and 'how we have become the individuals that we are.'" To Leeann, neuroscience gives her "the perfect opportunity to explore those answers." More ...
