Dr. Shahar Arzy studied medicine (MD) and cognitive neuroscience (MA) at the Hebrew University, and completed his PhD in neuroscience at the Swiss Institute of Technology and the University of Geneva. Specializing in the human cortex, he now works in the clinic of neuropsychiatry and the epilepsy center at the department of neurology at Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Center, and leading the Neuropsychiatry Lab. His main interest is the human self and its subjective experience in physiological and pathological states. He is involved in developing new tools for evaluation and management of neuropsychiatric patients, and puts special efforts in translating clinical neuropsychiatric concepts into a neuroscientific model of a “neurology of self”.

Noam has a BSc in physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and an MSc in Neurobiology. She is currently a PhD student of Brain science and behavior in the Neuropsychiatry lab. Her main research concerns body perception and its representation in the human brain. Data is obtained from fMRI scans followed by advanced analyses of distinguished subject groups with neurological pathologies.

Greg is a MD-PhD candidate at the Neuropsychiatry lab, having received a BA from the “Amirim” honors humanities program and a BSc in medicine from the Hadassah Hebrew university medical school. His interests include orientation, the self, metaphors, neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric conditions from clinical, neuroscientific and philosophical perspectives. Currently Greg is designing tools allowing to evaluate orientation as a marker for cognitive wellness, in the context of a comprehensive model accounting for the relation between orientation, self and semantic knowledge.

As a Psychobiology undergraduate at the Hebrew University, Amnon became fascinated with new discoveries regarding humans' subjective experience of the world and its abnormalities. Amnon soon became interested in translating these discoveries to people and patients and is currently pursuing an MD/PhD through Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical School. At the Computational Neuropsychiatry Lab, he is investigating EEG microstates related to mental orientation in healthy subjects and neurodegenerative states.

Tahel is studying towards a BSc in Psychobiology and an MSC in Brain and Behavioral Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She is investigating disorientation and its underlying brain mechanisms in various neurological disorders. Her main research at the Neuropsychiatry lab aims to redefine the clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, based on disorientation as a potential marker for the disorder, as well as supplying a functional and metabolic biomarker, using PET-MR machine.
