My name is Mariya Manahova (a.k.a. Marisha), and I am a PhD candidate in cognitive neuroscience. I research how the things we expect to see in the world (e.g., a car in the street) influence our brain activity. It turns out that our perception of the world is not objective, i.e., it doesn’t accurately represent the world around us. Rather, our perception is highly subjective because it is influenced by many cognitive processes happening in our brains.


The question, “How do we live a good life?” is very interesting to me. It leads me to explore personal organization and improvement, health and movement, as well as mindfulness and meditation.

Here I will discuss ideas for the good life we all want to live. Enjoy!
