Talma Hendler, Tel Aviv University, Israel
Dr. Talma Hendler (MD Psychiatry; PhD Neuroscience); full professor in Tel Aviv University (Faculties of Social Science and Medicine); founding director of the Sagol Brain Institute, Tel Aviv Medical Center (https://www.cbf-tlv.com/); a world-class clinical-neuroscience research center, aiming to translate basic science to clinical needs in brain-related medical fields. Hendler’s academic expertise is evident in her >20 years of work on the neural mechanism of emotions in humans with particular focus on; individual difference in emotional expression (e.g. empathy, anger, threat) and the impact of life events on mental health (stress and trauma). Her lab has been a world leader in combining EEG with fMRI and using AI computational approaches to unveil the hidden spatial information in EEG (termed; Electrical Finger Print, EFP). More recently her lab has implemented this new imaging approach in Brain Computer Interface training procedures aimed to prevent stress related psychopathology in combat soldiers and patients with post trauma disorder and chronic pain.
