Ativ Zomet

Ativ Zomet, BsC 
Ativ is a PhD student in the Clinical Neuroscience lab.
Her research interest is in the area of neuroscience, with emphasis on visual perception and psychiatric disorders. Her current work is focused on exploring the underlying mechanism of visual perception in patients with depression by using psychophysics, magnetic stimulation and ERP method. Her research involves number of disciplines such as low level vision (perception) and psychology (cognition), and considers causal processes that operate on different levels of the visual processing.
