Prof. Gal Richter-Levin

Fields of interest: The neurobiology of stress-related disorders

Research in the laboratory focuses on the understanding of the neurobiology of stress-related disorders, particularly Post-traumatic stress disorder and stress-induced depression, and the effects of stressful experiences in early life on cognitive and emotional abilities in adulthood.

Fields of interest: Social and affective neuroscience

We are interested in understanding the neural mechanisms underlying social cognition and emotional experiences. We focus on the cognitive and emotional consequences of brain pathologies whether psychiatric, acquired or developmental. In addition, recently we are involved in research projects that examine emotional and cognitive brain functions in healthy subjects using imaging and brain stimulation techniques.

Fields of interestDevelopmental    psychopathology
The primary research focus of our lab is on the development of anxiety disorders. By using a multiple level analysis approach, we study the biological, cognitive, behavioral and environmental factors that contribute to the etiology and maintenance of anxiety disorders. We use psychological, physiological and neuroscientific measures to better understand how these factors differentiate between the development of normative fear and pathological anxiety. More specifically, we focus on abnormally increased attention to threats and fear and safety learning. Research on these two mechanisms provides unique opportunities for improving early detection and generating novel treatments for anxiety disorders.

Fields of interest: Cognition-emotion interactions

Cognition Emotion Interaction Laboratory
In the CEI Lab, led by Dr. Hadas Okon-Singerwe examine the cognitive mechanisms that mediate cognition-emotion interactions and the neural pathways underlying these interactions in health and disease. Specifically, we study different factors that modulate human reactions to aversive situations, focusing on attention systems and personality differences in traits, tendencies and neural architecture. We examine how these factors modulate our behavioral, neural and autonomic reactions to emotional information. To this end, we combine paradigms derived from cognitive psychology, neuroimaging techniques, event-related potentials recordings, autonomic measures, personality questionnaires and advanced analysis methods. We implement this multi-method approach to understand the complexity of the neuro-cognitive mechanisms at the basis of emotion reactivity and control

Fields of interest :Director, Stress & Psychopathology research laboratory

Our research aims to address the following questions:

What are the neural mechanisms that mediate stress vulnerability and resiliency in humans?

How does exposure to stress impact neural, emotional, and cognitive functions? And what is the role of these processes in stress related psychopathology?

Are there any research based means that may be used to enhance stress resiliency in humans?

Research in our lab integrates behavioral, psychological, physiological, endocrinological and neural (brain function and structure) measures of stress response among healthy as well as psychopathological populations.
