The Laboratory for Attention

Head: Dr. Liat Goldfarb

Dr. Liat Goldfarb and her students' research:
Dr. Goldfarb and her 8-student team are studying the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying attention in humans. In their research they use a variety of techniques to study attention. This includes behavioral tests that aim to reveal how attention influences our performance and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) that aim to reveal the biological neural properties of attentions in the brain. In addition to studying the attention mechanism in healthy population they are interested in studying this mechanism in attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Dr. Goldfarb is supervising 8 Master's and 1 Doctoral student this year.
