Short Bio Email
Yaniv finished his PhD in the lab in 2022. He performed a series of EEG studies regarding neural variability in adults with ASD. This included multiple timepoints to examine the reliability of findings over time.
Ayelet completed her PhD in the lab in 2020. She studied the relationship between trial-by-trial variability and perceptual abilities in tasks with different attention loads. Ayelet is now a postdoc in the lab of Tobias Donner in Hamburg.
Nitzan completed her MA in the lab in 2021. She examined the impact of earlier diagnosis on the outcome of 1-6 year old children with ASD using longitudinal data collected at the National Autism Research Center of Israel.
Michal completed her PhD in the lab in 2021. She studied the impact of early diagnosis and educational placement on the outcomes of young children with ASD. Michal is now the clinical director of the Azrieli National Centre for Autism Research.
Shlomi completed his PhD in the lab in 2017. He performed fMRI studies about cortical motor control, visuomotor adaptation, and the characterization of trial-by-trial neural variability in the motor system. Shlomi is now a research fellow at the Brain Sciences Department in the Imperial College of London.
Edan finished her MA in the lab in 2020. She performed MEG and EEG studies that examined the characteristics of trial-by-trial neural variability and their relationship with perceptual abilities of typically developing adults.
Noa completed her PhD in the lab in 2020. She performed DTI studies using data collected from young children with and without ASD in San Diego. In addition, she studied the relationship between language abilities and support requirements of young children with ASD.
Gil Gonen Yaacovi
Gil completed her postdoc in the lab in 2015. She performed several EEG studies about the impact of trial-by-trial neural variability on cognitive abilities in individuals with and without ADHD.
Inbar completed her MA in the lab in 2019. She performed a series of eye tracking studies where she examined the social preferences and oculomotor control of young children with ASD as they observed different movies and salient targets.
