Oren Shriki
Assistant Professor, Dept. of Cognitive and Brain Sciences and Dept. of Computer Science, Zlotowski Center for Neuroscience, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel

Dr. Oren Shriki is the head of the computational psychiatry lab at Ben-Gurion University. Research in his lab uses mathematical analyses of brain activity and machine learning techniques to develop novel diagnostic tools for neurological and psychiatric disorders. The lab also develops computational models of neuronal networks to gain insights into how changes in neural dynamics lead to brain disorders and how neural plasticity may assist in restoring healthy neural dynamics. Another line of research in the lab focuses on brain computer interfaces and neurofeedback.
