Dr. Abigail Livny, PhD.
Principal Investigator

I am a neuropsychologist and a neuroscientist, head of the Diagnostic Neuroimaging Laboratory, Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Sheba Medical Center, Tel-Hashomer.

During my training as a neuropsychologist I became interested in brain pathologies, in particular in the way the brain reorganizes due to acute and chronic neuro-pathologies and how such reorganization in both brain structure and function corresponds with cognitive outcome. My interest in the understanding of brain functioning and in advanced brain imaging techniques led me to acquiring new skills in MR imaging in the context of brain disorders. My research focuses on the function and dysfunction of neuronal networks responsible for higher cognition, in neuropathologies. The aim of my studies is to deepen the understanding of cognitive impairment and neuronal reorganization in brain disorders. My research aims to improve diagnosis, prediction of prognosis, and personalize treatment in such clinical populations.
