קורות חיים

I have completed a PhD in Tel-Aviv University (School of Psychological Sciences) under the supervision of Prof. Galit Yovel. During consecutive years, I conducted postdoctoral research withProf. Geraint Rees (University College London, UK),  Prof. Moshe Bar (Bar-Ilan University, Israel) and Prof. Lionel Naccache (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle Epinière, Paris, France). In 2017 I joined Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Center as a faculty member.

מחקר

מעבדה שלנו עוסקת בהבנה מנגנוני קוגניציה גבוהה בבני-אדם. לצורך זה אנחנו משתמשים שיטות מתקדמות כמו  function MRI, Magnetoencephalography, הקלטות תוך מוחיות בני-אדם וסטימולצית מוח (tDCS). אנחנו משתמשים בגישות חישוביות כמו machine learning ותורת הרשתות.
