Biography

Prof. Elana Zion Golumbic is the head of the Human Brain Dynamics Laboratory at the Multidisciplinary Center for Brain Research at Bar Ilan University (www.golumbiclab.org). Her research focuses on studying how the brain processes dynamic information under real-life conditions and environments. Specifically, she seeks to understand the neural mechanisms underlying the processing of natural continuous stimuli, such as speech and music, how information from different senses is integrated on-line and how we are able to focus our attention on one particular speaker in noisy and cluttered environments. Research in her lab utilizes a range of techniques for recording electric and magnetic signals from the human brain (EEG, MEG and ECoG), as well as advanced psychophysical tools (eye-tracking, virtual reality, psychoacoustics). This rich methodological repertoire allows studying the system at multiple levels, and to gain a wide perspective on the link between Brain and Behavior.
