Dayan Lab


2010- Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Weizmann Institute of Science

Research Interests

Brain connectivity, functional neuroimaging, structural neuroimaging, computational modeling, network analysis, noninvasive brain stimulation, neuromodulation

Research Goals

My lab studies brain network connectivity in the healthy brain and in neurological and neuropsychiatric patient populations.Our work focuses on the organizational, dynamical, and computational properties of large-scale brain networks and determines how these properties contribute to human behavior in health and disease. We strive to advance our basic understanding of brain structure and function, while making discoveries that can be translated to clinical practice.
