Dr Yeshurun received her Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Weizmann Institute of Science in 2011. Her dissertation, under the guidance of Prof. Noam Sobel and Prof.Yadin Dudai, focus on the unique aspects of olfactory memory. She then completed her postdoctoral training with Prof. Uri Hasson in Princeton University, focusing on the neural correlates of interpretation of naturalistic stimuli.

Dr. Yaara Yeshurun-Dishon
Fields of Interest
Dr Yeshurun’s research focuses on social neuroscience “in the wild”. Using behavioral studies, fMRI and fNIRS, she is interested in studying the neural mechanisms underlying individual differences in the way individuals interpret external situations and the role of brain-to-brain synchronization in real-life interactions.
