Before I became an IMRIC researcher, I had already spent a number of years studying the brain and the mechanisms of Parkinson's. Here, in the Department of Physiology at IMRIC, I am able to combine the different areas of my post-doctoral fellowships.
Through my IMRIC collaboration with Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, we are studying Parkinson's, depression and schizophrenia, exploring techniques used today to treat Parkinson's, with the hope of finding ways to prevent the disease from occurring.

Helping the blind to “see” with their acute sense of hearing, treating schizophrenia patients by electrically stimulating tissue deep in their head, and giving the sense of feeling to those without limbs are all part of the wave of the future in brain science, presented by Israeli and foreign researchers at the Presidential Conference in Jerusalem.
