My early research has mainly concerned psychophysics, whereas my more recent research is increasingly concerned with cognitive processes. Am I a psychophysicist turned cognitive psychologist? Hardly. Apart from a sustained interest in psychophysics, my research in cognitive psychology is informed by a strong influence of psychophysical methods and ideas. My overall research outlook faithfully reflects the confluence of domains and inspiration of my mentors, teachers, and colleagues at Yale and Bar-Ilan (see Genealogy).
