Roy Mukamel, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Fellow

(310) 206-2200

Dr. Mukamel did his graduate work in the laboratory of Dr. Rafael Malach in the department of Neuroscience at the Weizmann Institute of Science where he used fMRI to study temporal properties of neurons in higher-order visual areas and studied single unit responses in collaboration with Dr. Fried. Recording from auditory cortex, he found strong coupling between the electrophysiological data (spike trains and LFP's) and the fMRI signal. As a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA, he continues to study the temporal dynamics of single neuron responses in human auditory cortex during natural audition, and, working with Dr. Fried and Dr. Marco Iacoboni, he is studying the mirror neuron system in humans using both electrophysiology and fMRI.
