Daniela Lichtman, B.Sc.

I am a master of medical sciences student at the Technion’s Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine.

I am interested in understanding the principles of arealization of cortical association regions. In particular, I am interested in understanding how spontaneous neural activity affects the development of cortical association regions and whether this activity, and subsequent arealization can explain individual differences in behavior. I will use chemogenetic tools to control neural activity and fMRI and behavior to characterize its effects. This work has implications to understanding brain development in babies, toddlers and adolescents.
