Dr. David Anaki, a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology and in the Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center, studies the psychological, neuropsychological, and neural properties of the human visual system. Anaki and his team investigate the unique mechanisms and processes that underlie the perception of various visual categories such as faces, objects, scenes and words, as well as the commonalities between them.
These issues are investigated by combining electrophysiological (ERP) and behavioral techniques, and by examining healthy individuals as well as individuals with specific neuropsychological deficits that affect various aspects of visual perception, such as agnosia, prosopagnosia, simultanagnosia and posterior cerebral atrophy (PCA). your position will include Literature searches for the professor’s projects
