DR. HAGGAI SHARON (MD)

Dr. Sharon's current work combines research into what builds the subjective experience of the self in health and disease. He is especially interested in the neurobiology of pain and methods that can rapidly change this aversive experience in a noninvasive, brain-focused and patient-tailored manner. To that aim he combines advanced functional brain imaging, pharmacotherapy and noninvasive brain stimulation and modulation techniques in healthy individuals and in patients.

Dr. Sharon leads the #Consciousness & Psychopharmacolog research team at the Sagol Brain Institute.

Sample of Current Research Projects

Selective emotional processing and its use as a marker for brain plasticity in patients with chronic disorders of consciousness

Disorders of consciousness (DOC), which include the Vegetative and Minimally Conscious States (VS and MSC), are severe disorders of consciousness following extensive brain injury, defined as states of preserved wakefulness but with either absent (VS) or severely impaired (MCS) behavioral evidence of awareness of self and the environment.
