BRAIN NEUROSCIENCE: THE STATE OF KNOWLEDGE, A VIEW INTO THE FUTURE
Neuroscience is a new discipline devoted to the systemic understanding of functions contained in the brain, like sensations, motor functions, learning, memory, attention, pleasure, reward, decision-making and emotions.
In recent years, neuroscience has experienced an important transformation thanks to scientific breakthroughs like the development of high-resolution medical imaging technology to study brain structure and activity, as well as the application of new molecular tools.
Prof. Adi Mizrahi will share knowledge and integrate recent findings on neuronal systems for processing information, from different biological, technological, mathematical and computational viewpoints, in order to combine them and obtain a broader, more complete view of the state of the art in systems neuroscience.
Professor Adi Mizrahi is the new co-director of ELSC.
He earned his doctorate at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. From 2001 to 2004 he was Post-doctoral fellow at the Medical Center of Duke University (USA).
Since 2004, Senior Lecturer in Neurobiology Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Adi Mizrahi is a member of ICNC (Interdisciplanry Centre for Neural Computation).
His research focuses on the olfactory system by experimental observation in vivo neurons which he showed for the first time possible regeneration.
Attached to the department of neurobiology Alexander Silberman Institute of Life Sciences at the Hebrew University, Adi Mizrahi has used mouse models to study how neurons, or nerve cells, develop from an undifferentiated cellular sphere of in a rich and complex cell.
Recognized for his work on the neurophysiological changes in real time and long term through optical imaging, it uses a two-photon microscope whose acquisition by the University was made possible thanks to the actions and AFIRNe the French Friends of UHJ.
It is one of five researchers who remporté- the first competition for Starting Independent Researcher exception of the European Union.
ELSC* is one of the top new Centre which aspires to revolutionize current neuroscience research. This Center will bring together a powerful interdisciplinary team of top scientists to explore the relationships between gene function, brain neuronal circuits, and behaviour.
