Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Liad obtained his Master's degree in brain sciences from Ben-Gurion University in Israel.
He, then, obtained his PhD in integrative neuroscience as part of the Wellcome Trust programme at the Biosciences department in Cardiff University, under the supervision of Prof. Vincenzo Crunelli and Prof. Mark Good.
As part of his postdoctoral research he is currently based at the Butt group, working on a joint research project with Dr. Michael Kohl and Prof. Peter Magill interrogating the role of transient interneuron circuits in the development of sensory preception.
Liad's main interests are sensory and cognitive processing and encoding in the cortex,through development and in adult animals. He is currently investigating how transient circuits of interneurons affect the sensory processing of the developing mammal.To do that he employs various electrophysiologcial techniques both in vitro and in vivo.
