Ifat Levy PhD
Assistant Professor of Comparative Medicine and of Neurobiology
I did my PhD at the Center for Neural Computation in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem under the supervision of Rafi Malach from the Weizmann Institute. In my thesis I used fMRI to explore the organization of object-related areas in the human brain. I then moved to do a post-doc with Paul Glimcher at the Center for Neural Science at New York University, where I studied sensory-motor transformations in the parietal cortex and valuation processes in the prefrontal cortex and the basal ganglia. I then moved to Yale School of Medicine, where I study valuation processes under different conditions and in different populations.
