Human Brain Biophysics lab

Our research group’s ultimate goal is to develop an understanding of how individual specific biological structures influence human cognition, under both normal and pathological conditions.
The lab is part of the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Research in the lab is focused on in-vivo mapping of human brain structures. We are investigating the relationship between anatomy, function and behavior in the normal population and in neurological disorders. The research projects in the lab are focused on in-vivo quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI).

We are developing tools to biophysically explain MRI signals at different levels and resolutions: from molecular local sources through cellular organization to mapping of brain networks across the entire brain. Using these tools, we are studying brain development, aging and neurological disorders. Together we are investigating the relationship between anatomy, function and behavior.

Open Positions

Our Lab is now recruiting students and postdocs interested in human brain imaging. Background in MR, biophysics, computer-science, engineering or other related fields can be advantageous.

We are also looking for post-docs or researchers (full/part time) with background in MR-physics.
