Daniel Margulies

Group Leader
Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences

I am a neuroscientist with a background in the humanities. My work consists of basic neuroanatomy that explores how connectivity within the cerebral cortex is organized, as well as ongoing collaborations that address the functional implications of this organization for spontaneous thought (or ‘mind-wandering’, with Jonny Smallwood) and the historical emergence of the research fields surrounding such questions (with Felicity Callard). I currently lead the research group for Neuroanatomy & Connectivity at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig and am a core member of Hubbub, the first residency at the Hub at Wellcome Collection.
