I did my B.A in Psychology and Cognitive science in the Hebrew university. Following which I joined the direct PhD program at ELSC. My PhD research, is focused on studying the claustrum, a small nucleus of vast connectivity, and its roll in attention and cortical gain. In particular, I am interested in cortical modulation performed by the claustrum, and am focusing on the frontal cortex. The methods I use combine both behavioral and electrophysiological experiments.
