Biography


I graduated from the Brain and Behavioural Sciences programme at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2009. I was then awarded several career development fellowships to establish my research program on brain plasticity in amputees at FMRIB, the neuroimaging centre of the University of Oxford, first as Research Fellow and later as a Principle Investigator. In 2016 I joined the faculty of UCL to continue this work. 

Research Summary

I am a neuroscientist at UCL’s Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, heading the Plasticity Lab. My main interest is in understanding the key drivers and limitations of reorganisation in the adult brain. My primary model for this work is studying individuals with a hand loss. A particular focus is on how habitual behaviour, such as prosthesis usage, shapes brain reorganisation. For this purpose, I integrate methods from the fields of neuroscience, experimental psychology and rehabilitation. I hope my research will enable clinicians to guide amputees and related clinical populations to take advantage of the benefits of brain reorganisation, rather than to suffer from their adverse effects.
