Naama Kadmon Harpaz
PhD in Life Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), 2017
MSc in Life Sciences, Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), 2012
Naama completed her PhD with Prof. Tamar Flash at the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science, where she studied invariant properties of movement execution and their underlying representation in the motor cortex of humans and non-human primates. In the Ölveczky lab, she is interested in studying the role of the motor cortex in motor learning, focusing on how the motor cortex exerts its control on subcortical regions, such as the basal ganglia, during the process of skill acquisition.
