The functional brain imaging unit at Tel Aviv University, in conjunction with the Sorasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv, aims to promote high-quality basic and clinical research regarding the structure of the human brain, using sophisticated in vivo imaging equipment. Specific objectives of the unit include: (i) mapping the functional structure of the human brain in the context of various types of behavior (perception, motion, cognition, emotion, etc.) amongst healthy and clinical populations; (ii) devising new approaches for mapping the human brain, using integrated imaging methods, (iii) promoting  interdisciplinary research amongst neuroscientists and clinical scientists involved in brain research, and (iv) promoting and supporting programs of instruction and academic meetings on the subject of cognitive and imaging neuroscience. The unit is headed by Dr. Hendler, a member of the School of Psychological Sciences' faculty. The unit serves researchers at the school and the university whose research includes brain imaging.
