The Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmied) Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center at Bar-Ilan University brings together researchers in a variety of fields which are essential to understanding the brain, including psychology, physics, linguistics, computing and biology.
Research at the Gonda Center studies the brain at all levels - from behavior and cognitive processing through detailed mechanisms of information processing in neural circuits, to the analysis of vital molecules within nerve cells. Research approaches cover all techniques from personal interviews, through electro physiology and from molecular biology to abstract mathematical modeling. The Gonda Center attracts new, top-flight researchers from Israel and around the world.
Can phenomenology, mindfulness training and MEG neuroimaging be fruitfully combined for characterizing some of the more subtle aspects of self-awareness?
