Maya Kaufman

Post-Doc researcher

I am interested in neuronal encoding of speech and its interplay with attention in a multi-talker auditory scene.

Anat Kliger

PhD student

My research focuses on individual rhythms and synchronization to rhythmic stimuli. I am also interested in the interaction between rhythms and attention, and hope to contribute to enhancing attentional capabilities through rhythmic treatment.

PhD student

My thesis focuses on prioritization of auditory inputs, and specifically mechanisms that facilitate ignoring of background noises.

Paz Har-Shai Yahav

PhD student

My research interest is studying the “cocktail-party effect” and identifying neural markers indicating the depth of processing applied to attended and unattended speech and music.

Danna Pinto

PhD student

I am currently working on several research projects pertaining to Statistical Learning of a Pseudo-language, the effect of Name familiarity in the Cocktail Party Effect, and Spatial Attention.
