Julia Mossbridge, Ph.D. is the Director of the Innovation Lab at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, the Lead Robot Psychologist and Executive Coach at Hanson Robotics, a Visiting Scholar in the Psychology Department at Northwestern University, the Science Director at Focus@Will Labs, and an Associated Professor in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. She received her Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Northwestern University, her M.A. in Neuroscience is from the University of California at San Francisco, and her B.A. with highest honors in neuroscience from Oberlin College.
Julia’s interest in how time is perceived by unconscious and conscious processes has led her to examine aspects of both cognitive and perceptual timing (e.g., order effects on reading comprehension, perceptual integration across senses) as well as controversial reverse-temporal effects (covered in ABC News 20/20, Wall Street Journal Ideas Market, Fox News and other mainstream media outlets). She is also the 2014 winner of the Charles Honorton Integrative Contributions award for this work. She is currently working on a book related to this work, The Premonition Code, to be released in October 2018 from Watkins Media.
She is also currently engaged in four love-centered projects: 1) LOVING AIs, a project designed to bring unconditional love into artificial intelligence (especially artificial general intelligence), 2) a project in which she is examining whether hypnosis can be used to induce a state of unconditional love, 3) The Calling, her current book project about how love gets translated into life purpose, and 4) consciously bringing unconditional love into the lives of the tech workers and executives she coaches.
Julia received funding from the National Institutes of Health in her role as post-doctoral member of the Psychology Department at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. She is a peer reviewer for Brain Research, Perception, Cognition, PLoS One, Explore, and Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. She also invented and patented Choice Compass, a physiologically based decision-making app.
Julia is the author of Unfolding: The Perpetual Science of Your Soul’s Work (New World Library, 2002) and The Garden: An Inside Experiment. She is the co-author, with Imants Baruss, of Transcendent Mind: Re-thinking the Science of Consciousness published in 2017 by the American Psychological Association.
