Basic research in cognitive neuroscience and its application to solve problems in the real world and the workplace is the frontier in psychological science and making an impact in the world we live in. Much of Dr. Dror's and CCI-HQ's research has been covered by the major scientific journals (e.g., Science and Nature), and in our various events.
Below is a list of scientific publications by Dr Itiel Dror (cited over 9,000 times, including articles with 500+ citations, and over 10 articles with 200+ citations, and over 25 articles with 100+ citations –source Google Scholar). The articles are listed in chronological order (within each year they are listed by alphabetical order).
