Leon Y. Deouell, MD, PhD
Jack H. Skirball chair in neuroscience

I was toward the end of my medical studies when I first met patients with neuropsychological deficits like unilateral neglect and got fascinated with the link between the brain and cognition. I feel privileged for being able to study this, with students and collaborators, ever since. I am a member of a the department of psychology and the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Neuroscience where I head the neuroimaging unit.  I am also a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Empirical Aesthetics.

consciousness, attention,

working memory and their relationships using EEG, eyetracker and psychophysics.

Tamar Regev,

PhD student, Neuroscience

My PhD focuses on the neural representation of auditory pitch, using EEG in musicians and non-musicians.
My background is in Physics, Biology and Cognitive Science and my hobbies are playing music and creating art with computers and electronics.


Deborah Marciano,

PhD Student, Cognitive Neuroscience

I investigate the way we make decisions and evaluate outcomes. I use a combination of neuroscience techniques (EEG) and behavioral economics paradigms. In my PhD, I focused on the electrophysiological correlates of outcome comparison. I am the proud mother of two trademarked biases – the Alternative Omen Effect and the Limited Luck Belief – and three fantastic kids.

Carmel Auerbach, 

PhD student, Neuroscience

I study free visual processing in free viewing using EEG and eye-tracking

Chen Gueta,

MA Student

I am finishing my MA in clinical rehabilitational neuro-psychology in the lab. I am currently the lab manager

Gal Vishne,

PhD Student, Neuroscience

My current work focuses on using multivariate analysis on temporally resolved data to study persistent viewing. I am also interested in postdictive and predictive effects on perception, specifically the neural mechanisms behind apparent motion. I study in the ELSC PhD program in computational neuroscience. My BA is in Math (summa cum laude) from Bar Ilan University.

Ariel Furstenberg,


I am a research associate at the Hebrew University. My current interest lies at the borderline between philosophy and brain science, specifically regarding the issue of agency, intentionality, self-control and free-will; conducting human behavioral and electrophysiological experimentation.

Naomi Revel,

Reasearch Assistant

Currently studying for B.A in Cognitive science and Psychology.

Shai Shachar,

MA Student 

I am currently a third year BSc. Student of psychobiology.  I am part of a fast trak MA program in psychology.  My research interests center around auditory predictions and their neural correlates.

Gal Chen,

PhD Student, Psychology

I am studying the underlying mechanisms of selection to awareness and it's neural correlates.
