Roey Schurr
Postdoctoral Researcher

I am intrigued by mechanistic explanations to various cognitive processes. To understand how the brain gives rise to behavior, I believe we must integrate behavioral studies, computational models of cognition and advanced neuroimaging.

I completed my PhD in Computational Brain Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (ELSC). There, I worked with Prof. Aviv Mezer and developed methods for in vivo mapping of white-matter tracts using multi-modal quantitative MRI.

Outside the lab, I have a great passion for teaching and education. I also enjoy running, ink drawing and children’s books.
