Gal Chen

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Psychology, In which I’m working with Prof. Hassin and Prof. Deouell. My interest lies in the interface between the input we receive from the world and the phenomenal experience we have shortly after. I am studying the underlying mechanisms of selection to awareness, to better understand it’s function and the processes that must occur for consciousness. I am hoping to find ways to better describe the elusive feeling of being conscious, in both the neural and psychological levels.
