Dr. Alain Morin got his Ph.D from Laval University in 1992. Between 1991 and 2001 he taught various courses and conducted research in a host of Canadian universities and colleges in the Maritimes (e.g., St. Francis Xavier University, Acadia University) and Québec (e.g., Université de Montréal, CEGEP de Rivière-du-Loup). Now at Mount Royal University in Calgary, he teaches Theories of Personality, Social Cognition, and The Self. His field of expertise is self-awareness, more specifically: its cognitive underlying mechanisms with an emphasis on inner speech. Morin publishes scientific papers in journals such as Consciousness & Cognition, Cortex, Brain & Behavioral Sciences, Brain Research Bulletin, Journal of Consciousness Studies, Laterality, Journal of Mind and Behavior, and Social and Personality Psychology Compass. His most recent contribution is a theoretical paper entitled "The self-awareness—anognosia paradox: How can one process be associated with activation of, and damage to, opposite sides of the brain?" Morin is also currently writing a book chapter on the self-reflective function of inner speech to be published in a anthology on inner speech (Oxford University Press). He recently co-edited 15 scientific papers on inner experiences for Frontiers in Cognitive Science. Other research interests include self-recognition, the localization of the self in the brain, the split-brain phenomenon, neurophilosophy, fame and self-destruction, and the antecedents of self-consciousness.
