Technion Behavioral Data Science Symposium
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
The 10th Israeli Conference on Cognition Research (ISCOP)
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!
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.

New Paper: How do We Update our Sense of Self?
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
New Paper: Impaired Sense of Agency in Psychosis
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
The Gonda Annual Conference at Kfar Blum
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
Neural Representation of the Parent-Child Attachment from Infancy to Adulthood
The mother-infant bond serves as a basis for future attachment interactions that the child develops across life. In attachment theory, there is much emphasis on the consistency of such bonds, but is it also consistent in our brain? We examined the neural response to attachment-related videos collected over two decades. Young adults were fMRI scanned
