Charles Davis is a Canadian cognitive neuroscientist researching and teaching about how the human mind extracts meaning from a messy world, with a specific focus on how we understand meaning in language (for example, what happens in the mind that allows us to understand what a melon is, or what justice is?). When not in the lab or classroom, he is probably hanging with his dog, watching basketball (his favorite player was UNC alum Vince Carter), in the kitchen, or exploring the outdoors.
