Dr. Beker holds a PhD in neurophysiology and MsC in Cognitive Psychology. She investigates the oscillatory signatures in normal vs. abnormal information processing. Dr. Beker's current research is focused on probing the neuronal dynamics underlying inflexibility in people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In this framework, the processes of interest are the ability of individuals with ASD to make temporal predictions upon their environment, and to be adaptive to novel stimuli and patterns. This is achieved through EEG measurements of the temporal dynamics critical in normal functioning, as well as through pupillometry and psychophysics.
