Ami Citri

Ami Citri’s research has two main foci:
1. Defining the mechanisms of selective attention, by which our brain focuses on specific information from the world around us.
2. Once this information has been selected, the Citri lab strives to decipher the detailed mechanisms through which this information is encoded to form memories, and lead to the development of habits, compulsions and addictions.
