As part of our yearly tradition, we all gathered at the beautiful beach house in Beit-Yanai for a day of relaxation and bonding. To celebrate the end of the academic year, we had a delicious breakfast, experienced a delightful sound-healing workshop, and shared our most desired research ideas. Of course, we didn’t miss another opportunity
Ophir and Yoni, PhD students in our lab, presented their work in the Technion Behavioral Data Science Symposium. This symposium brought together researchers from academia and industry who work on topics at the intersection of behavioral science and data science. Our students presented their work on implicit and explicit aspects of Sense of Agency, expectations and
Our lab participated in the 10th Israeli Conference on Cognition Research (ISCOP) in Akko. The students: Yoni, Reina, Ophir and Oded, shared their work in talks and posters, presenting the investigation of the psychophysical, physiological, and behavioral measures of Sense of Reality and Sense of Agency. During the conference we enjoyed meeting and discussing science with
Congratulations to PhD student Yoni Stern for winning the University of Haifa’s “Dafna & Aharon Eviatar Award” for outstanding research on psychopathology. Yoni’s doctoral research focuses on improving our understanding of how psychological stress interacts with cognitive changes during the early stages of psychosis, in the hope that it will improve early detection and intervention.
We are happy to announce that the lab has now moved to the University of Haifa. We would like to thank the amazing people from Gonda Brain research center who have supported the lab and its students for the past 6 years. We are excited to begin our work with outstanding colleagues and a great
We are excited to announce that the Salomon Lab will be moving to the Department of Psychology at the University of Haifa in Feb. 2023. The lab will continue its work on the cognitive and neural mechanisms of the Sense of Self, Sense of Reality and their relation with psychosis and psychedelics. We have several
We are happy to report that Slab PI, Roy Salomon, has been promoted to Tenured Associate Professor. Congratulations Roy!
Although we experience our sense of Self as stable, it is constantly changing and being constantly updated. To understand how this happens, our new paper published in Cortex examines how sense of agency (SoA) is modulated by previous trials’ (aka serial dependence) stimuli and judgments, untangling the computational mechanisms allowing us to keep the Self
In this new preregistered study, published in Schizophrenia, we examined SoA and its associated confidence judgments using an embodied virtual reality paradigm in psychosis patients and controls. Our results show that psychosis patients not only have a severely reduced ability to discriminate their actions but they also do not show proper metacognitive insight into this
Our lab participated in the annual Gonda brain conference at Kfar Blum, in which our members presented research posters investigating the psychophysical, physiological, and behavioral measures of Sense of Reality, the kinematic aspects of Sense of Agency, and the neural representation of the parent-child attachment through the course of life. Between the lectures, we also
