Yadin Dudai is a world-renowned neurobiologist who holds the Sela Chair in Neurobiology at New York University and is Head of the Department of Neurobiology at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel. He founded The Dudai Lab at the Weizmann Institute, which investigates molecular, cellular, and system mechanisms of learning and memory in the mammalian brain. The lab’s research examines the processes and mechanisms that convert one-shot experiences into long-term memory (“consolidation”), and in the retrieval and post-retrieval fate of items in memory, including remodelling, extinction, suppression, erasure, and forgetting.
