Personal profile

About Me

Professor Joseph Glicksohn was trained in cognitive psychology (MA, PhD), with a focus on the study of subjective experience. His research on time perception, metaphoric thinking, and personality and individual differences has progressed in parallel. His postdoctoral training in the psychobiology of personality and cognitive neuroscience (specifically, brain imaging, EEG, neuropsychology) has served him well in establishing a solid line of research in both Bar-Ilan's Department of Criminology and the Gonda Brain Research Center. He has been looking at such key areas of criminological and brain research as the study of sensation seeking, the relationship between impulsivity and time perception, and electrophysiological and neuropsychological correlates of personality traits.

About Me

My areas of interest are interdisciplinary (the study of metaphor, the study of consciousness, the study of time, the study of personality). I am interested in the interactive nature of personality traits, having an orientation which is clearly Gestalt-based, going back to Allport and, in turn, the influence of Gestalt psychology on his theorizing. My study of subjective experience using a microgenetic approach will bring to mind Heinz Werner's developmental approach that I support.
