In the Daydreaming Lab, we are creating new methods to measure daydream content, frequency, duration, meta-awareness (i.e., awareness that one is daydreaming), and attitudes toward daydreaming.

Data Analysis: We focus on extensive data exploration, optimal methods for the estimation of parameters, effect size estimation, and confidence intervals. We do not engage in the Null Hypothesis Significance Testing Process (NHSTP).

Our lab follows open science practices.

I am a signatory of the Openness Initiative (https://opennessinitiative.org/).
