How much of our brains do we actually use? Can we really talk over the phone and drive – at the same time? And what is brain chatter? Dr. Ayelet Landau talks about her exciting research into the rhythmic nature of our perceptions
"Dr. Ayelet Landau joined the Hebrew University in July 2014 as a senior lecturer in the Departments of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences. Since 2010, Landau has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) for Neuroscience in cooperation with Max Planck Society in Frankfurt, Germany. Prior to this she did her PhD in cognition, brain and behavior, at the University of California, Berkley.
Her laboratory utilizes non-invasive physiology methods to investigate neural mechanisms and behavioral phenomena associated with spatial attention and the perception of time"
