Hadas Benisty

I am a senior lecturer (assistant professor) at the Technion, Faculty of Medicine. I completed a Postdoc at Yale University, in the Neuroscience department, with Prof. Michael Higley (Neuroscience) and Prof. Ronald Coifman (Applied Math). I completed my Ph.D. at the Technion's Faculty of Electrical Engineering, working with Profs. David Malah and Koby Crammer and collaborated with Prof. Ronen Talmon and Prof. Jackie Schiller.  


My research is primarily focused on investigating the dynamics of neuronal networks and how their organizational principles, functional connectivity and plasticity mechanisms relate to behavior and learning in healthy subjects (animals or humans), as well as in models of neurodevelopmental or degenerative disorders.


I develop novel approaches for analysis and modeling of cortical networks based on dynamical systems, graph-theory, manifold learning and machine learning.

I am looking for students who want to dive into the coolest dynamic system of all (the brain!) and interested in computational research.

We have openings for MSc and Ph.D. studies, as well as post-docs. Please contact me at

Research Interests

  • Cortical networks – temporal evolution, plasticity and representation of Behavior
  • Statistical dynamical systems and network analysis

  • Interpretable models and representations for high dimensional dynamical signals

  • Dynamic feature selection for non-linear models
