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.
