Areas of research

Semantic processing by the two cerebral hemispheres,  cognitive and neural bases of linguistic creativity, metaphor comprehension, semantic and associative networks, word retrieval, Tip-of-the Tongue states, phonological processing, individual differences in processing foreign languages.

My research is highly multidisciplinary. I use multiple experimental methods and techniques and study both typical persons and various clinical populations. I collaborate with colleagues from laboratories and medical centers in Israel and abroad.
