I pursued my PhD at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (supervisor: Avishai Henik). Then, I did a postdoc at Sourasky medical center (host: Talma Hendler) and a second postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany (host: Arno Villringer).
At my lab, we examine the cognitive mechanisms that mediate cognition-emotion interactions and the neural pathways underlying these interactions in health and disease. Specifically, we study different factors that modulate human reactions to aversive situations, focusing on attention systems and personality differences in traits, tendencies and neural architecture. We examine how these factors modulate our behavioral, neural and autonomic reactions to emotional information.
