The Dinstein lab was established in 2012 in the department of Psychology at Ben Gurion University, Israel. Our research focuses on autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and includes a wide range of studies that utilize behavioral, psychophysics, neuroimaging, physiological measures (sleep, heart rate, activity), motion tracking, speech analysis, and eye tracking techniques. We perform basic science studies that reveal new insights about early ASD risk factors, development, physiology, and behavior. In parallel, we also carry out clinical studies to test the utility of new technologies, medical devices, behavioral treatments, and pharmacological interventions.
Our goal is to improve autism diagnosis and treatment by working together with clinicians, affected families, autistic individuals, the Israeli healthcare and education systems, industry partners, and national policy makers.
Prof. Dinstein is also the founding director of the Azrieli National Autism Centre for Autism and Neurodevelopment Research. An institution that spearheads ASD research in Israel by managing large-scale research projects such as the establishment of a national database and biobank for ASD.
