Dr Noam Sagiv
Lecturer in Psychology


Since my undergraduate studies, my interests have gradually shifted from physics and chemistry to neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience and psychology. After completing my PhD studies in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Califronia, I spent two years at University College London as a post-doctoral research fellow. I joined Brunel in 2005.
