The following labs use electrophysiology techniques to study neuroscience in different animal models:
Amitai Yael Studies neuronal circuits in the mammalian neocortex with a specific focus on the membrane properties of neurons in the neocortex, the characteristics of synapses, the rules of cortical organization, and the interactions between neurons and astrocytes, the brain's supporting cells.
Donchin Opher Studies motor control with behavioral, electrophysiology and neuroimaging techniques with a particular interest in understanding the function of the cerebellum.
Gitler Daniel Studies the mechanisms that control synaptic vesicle dynamics within the presynaptic terminal, and how these affect synaptic function.
Gueon-Sela Noa Focuses on cognitive and social development in early childhood from a biopsychosocial perspective. Specifically interested in the contributions of children's autonomic nervous system activity and the quality of their early relationships with their primary caregivers.
Fleidervish Ilya Studies how molecular elements, such as voltage-gated channels, are distributed and regulated in their native environment.
Friedman Alon Studies the pathophysiology of several brain disorders and the effects of stress on the nervous system. Human and animal studies focus on dysfunction of the blood-brain barrier in epilepsy and neurodegenerative diseases, developing new imaging methods and novel therapies for the prevention and treatment of injury-related epilepsy and neurodegeneration.
Libersat Frederic Studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which parasites control the behavior of their hosts using a cocktail of neurotoxins and neuromodulators.
Salti Moti Studies the neural processes that characterize conscious states and those that underlie conscious perception using various behavioral and imaging techniques in healthy subjects and in patients.
Yifrach Ofer Studies the involvement of voltage-dependent potassium channels in action potential generation, propagation and transmission.
Zangen Avraham Studies the critical alterations within the brain reward system that are associated with pathological conditions, and how localized electromagnetic stimulation (using TMS) of these networks can affect such conditions in animal models and humans with a specific focus on molecular and electrophysiological alterations in reward-related networks that are associated with and may cause depression, addiction and attention deficit disorders.
Zilberberg Noam Studies the regulation of potassium leak (K2P) channel activity, including the search for specific potassium channel modifiers, the effects of native neurotoxins (isolated from various venoms) on potassium channels, and the development of a screening system for the identification of recombinant channel-blockers
