On Wednesday, 17.4, we are honored to host four excellent lecturers from psychology in the framework of the Think & Drink meetings in Kenta for four short lectures in Ted style (about 20 minutes each) on everything new (and interesting) in psychology.

Dr. Liraz Margalit – The Psychology Behind Digital Addiction

What do drug dealers and software engineers have in common? They are the only professionals who call their customers ‘users’.
Addiction to technology is a relatively new phenomenon – an uncontrollable need to be connected to the Internet, being constantly in the vicinity of a smartphone, checking messages, and regularly entering social networks just as much as hunger or thirst. Dr. Liraz Margalit, a researcher at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, specializes in the psychology of the digital world and will talk about the ways in which psychological understandings of the human brain are leveraged in order to attract users’ attention and psychological addiction.

Dr. Erez Saberling – The Effect of Sense of Power on Relationships.

How does a sense of power affect the ability of men and women to be sensitive to their partners?
Why does most of the research in this field show that power corrupts, while empowerment processes lead to positive results? All this and more in the lecture of Dr. Erez Saberling lecturer in psychology at the University of Haifa and the Council that investigated the subject in his doctoral dissertation and in a new book published recently.

Dr. Jonathan Kushnir – Insomnia: I can not get no sleep
Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder that can result in difficulty falling asleep and / or maintaining continuous sleep and causing great distress. People do different things to try to overcome this difficulty, but most of these things even exacerbate the problem. In the lecture we will hear about a new cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia known as CBT-I that helps overcome the underlying factors that maintain insomnia.
Dr. Jonathan Kushnir is an expert clinical psychologist and instructor in cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Amit Avron – Electrify the brain
How external electrical interference (TDCS) allows to increase the brain’s natural electrical activity in specific areas and thereby improve learning, memory and recovery from a stroke. Can you use this intervention to turn on the “spark of creativity”? All this and more in a lecture by Amit Avron, lecturer in the field of brain and psychology at the Open University, and in various frameworks.

The meeting will begin at 19:30, opening doors at 18:30.
