ELSC Members

Sachs Family Faculty Development Chair in Brain Sciences
Lottem lab

I am a senior lecturer at the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
I did my undergraduate studies in biology at Ben Gurion University, Israel, where I also received my PhD in neuroscience under the supervision of Dr. Rony Azouz.   
Before starting my faculty position at the Hebrew University, I was a postdoctoral fellow and subsequently a research associate in the lab of Dr. Zachary Mainen in the Champalimaud Center for the Unknown, based in Lisbon, Portugal.

RESEARCH

We are interested in understanding the neural mechanisms of decision-making. In particular, we aim to identify specific brain regions and activity patterns that mediate the selection of particular actions over others, the learning processes that lead to these preferences, and the ways that animals’ internal motivational states modulate such preferences.
