Jason Tangen's research is broadly based on Expertise & Evidence. That is, the perceptual and cognitive changes that occur as we accumulate experiences. Jason has several projects underway on awareness, forensic reasoning, the perception of banknote features, and the flashed face distortion effect. Originally trained in philosophy and cognition, he did a PhD on causal learning at McMaster University in Canada and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New South Wales. He regularly teaches courses on Critical Thinking, Judgement & Decision Making, and Consciousness & Cognition.
