Prof. Dr. Ehud Ahissar
Website
Department of Neurobiology, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel
Interests: What does it mean for a brain to perceive? What are the processes underlying the seemingly effortless acts of seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting or smelling? In our lab we try to answer some of these questions. We focus on the senses of touch and vision: we study them in rodents and humans, construct them in synthetic (robotic) and hybrid (brain-machine) agents, and substitute one with the other.
