Generally, I am interested in the ways ‘cognitive’ and ‘motivational’
processes interact. Specifically, I don’t really believe that such
a separation exists anywhere in the mind or brain. It may be more
beneficial to think of the two as different representations of
information that interact and influence each other in many complex ways.
With Ran I studied how motivational processes affect Implicit learning
and have proceeded to study how these affect intuitive problem solving
and selective attention. Other than that I am married to Tami and basically that’s it.
