About Me

The main topics I research

A. Processing, memory and consolidation of context stimuli
1) Cognitive processing and memory for background stimuli
2) Investigation of two types of unitization: contextual locking versus chunking
3) The unification of learning navigation routes
B. The relationship between exposure to trauma and the post-traumatic symptoms

4) Factors capable of mitigating the effect of exposure to trauma and thus lowering the level of post-traumatic symptoms
5) Subjective perceptions of time (subjective age and distance to death) and the relationship they have with post-traumatic symptoms
6) The contribution of mental resources in the present versus mental resources required for future tasks to prepare for threats in the present and the future
8) The effect of CONTEXT stimuli reminiscent of the trauma on the appearance of post-traumatic symptoms
9) Complex PTSD - - a research project on Yazidi women who were captives of ISIS
