 Welcome to Duek Stress & Epidemiology Lab 

The lab focuses on the mental, psychological, and cognitive effects following exposure to stressful events.


Our Research Focus:
 PTSD, Epidemiology & Neuroscience 

The intersection of psychology and public health, understanding the epidemiological implications of stress exposure on individuals and communities. A common sequela to traumatic events is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition that has significant public health ramifications. My primary focus lies at the intersection of Epidemiology and Psychology. I am keen on studying the symptomatology and neurobiological underpinnings of PTSD, its mechanisms of progression, as well as the cognitive and behavioral consequences of stress exposure in broader populations. This aligns with a public health perspective, promoting understanding of the prevalence, distribution, and control of PTSD and stress-related disorders in the population.


Selected Projects:

· Mental Health Map in Israel (MHMI)

· Pre/Post Free Recall and Neuroimaging

· PTSD Reward & Punishment
