Neural representations of valence in the primate brain.


Prof. completed a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Philosophy, a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience from the Hebrew University, and postdoctoral studies at Rutgers University. He joined the Weizmann Institute in 2008. His Lab investigate the neural codes that underlie phenomena such as reinforcement learning, generalization of learning, emotional modulation of memories, extinction and maintenance of memories, primitives of computation, social cognition, and derives animal and human models for pathologies that arise from abnormalities in the neural code (e.g. post-traumatic-stress-disorder (PTSD), Mood and Anxiety disorders, Autism and more). He is currently the Dean of the Faculty of Biology, and the Director of the Director of the Drescher Center for Research on Mental and Emotional Health.
