S​tudies psychological and neural properties of the human visual system with a specific ​focus on brain mechanisms giving rise to perception of faces, objects, scenes and visually guided behavior. ​

Ilan Di​nstein   homeE-Mail

Studies brain function and structure in developmental disorders including autism and ADHD with a strong emphasis on toddlers who have just been diagnosed. Ongoing​ projects include sensory, motor, and resting-state experiments using EEG and fMRI to study brain function as well as anatomical and DTI MRI scans to study brain structure.

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. 

Avishai Hen​ik homeE-Mail

Studies numerical cognition, synesthesia, attention, and word processing using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques in humans. Studies include experiments with children, adults, and elderly individuals as well as populations with impaired cognitive abilities. 

Moti Sa​lti E-Mail

Studies the neural processed that characterize conscious states and those that underlie conscious perception using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques in different patient groups and controls.

Our field of research is social-cognitive neuroscience. We are mostly interested in phenomena that seem to be the result of the social/cultural and communicative/symbolic capacities of humans (for example, the ability to regulate one's emotions, political conflict). In thinking of these phenomena, we focus on individual-level mental events  that may subserve them (e.g., perspective-taking processes, the workings of motivational systems), often applying a biological perspective (i.e., thinking in terms of evolutionary functions and biological systems, using neuroimaging methods).

The research is focused in the field of balance control in the elderly. We have developed a novel mechatronic device called the Balance Measure & Perturbation System (BaMPer System) in collaboration between the Physical Therapy and mechanical engineering departments (patent​ PCT/IB2010/052079). The BaMPer provide controlled and unpredictable perturbations of posture while subjects carry out daily motor tasks such as walking. These perturbations trigger postural “reflexes", lead to an activation of balance recovery responses.​
