My name is Will, I am currently a Ph.D candidate in a direct Ph.D track in Clinical Neuro-Psychology (with the Dean's Ph.D scholarship for excellence). My advisor is Dr. Shai Gabay from the University of Haifa and IIPDM. I have a BA in Cognitive Science and Psychology from the Hebrew University (with honors), and I worked as a TA in the courses of: Statistical Methods and Experimental Psychology at the Hebrew University.
I'm curious to explore a model which examines the interaction between two axes:
(i) Cortical - Subcortical mechanisms.
(ii) Volitional - Reflexive processes.
In my Ph.D. work, I apply three different methodological strategies to determine whether Cortical - Subcortical mechanisms have a functional role in each cognitive process:
(i) Archer Fish, which lacks a fully developed cortex.
(ii) Sensitive psycho-physical manipulation to probe the contribution of subcortical - monocularly segregated - regions in humans.
(iii) Functional magnetic resonance imaging.
