Dr. Talya Sadeh

Dr. Sadeh is a new faculty member at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, returning to Israel from a postdoctoral position in Canada, at the Baycrest Centre and the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on the neuro-cognitive mechanisms of episodic memory—the unique human capacity to re-live events from the past—and asks questions like: Why do we forget? How is information organized in memory? How is memory affected by pre - and post-learning processes? These topics have implications not only for theory, but also for practice in treatment of memory loss.
