Noam Karsh, Ph.D.


I completed my master’s degree in Social Psychology at Ben-Gurion University and a Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Haifa, Israel. My research interests lie in the area of social and motor cognition. I am especially interested in how both the 'self' and social cognition are embodied in a motor action. My current work is dedicated to understanding the contribution of both the motor system and a ‘high-level’ cognition to one’s sense of agency and how such mechanisms influence motor control, action-selection, motivation, response inhibition, perception and conscious experience.
