As neuroscientist and trained clinical psychologist, Dr. Paret leverages neuroscience to develop new treatments for individuals suffering from mental disorders. For the two-year fellowship granted him by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Dr. Paret is working with Prof. Talma Hendler at the Sagol Brain Institute, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center. His research focuses on the learning of brain self-regulation with live feedback from the “emotional brain,” using functional neuroimaging.
