Roy received his B.Sc. in computer science and Biology from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and completed his Ph.D. studies in neuroscience in 2005 in the lab of Prof. Rafael Malach from the Weizmann institute of Science. Following post-doctoral training at UCLA, he joined the School of Psychological Sciences as faculty member in 2010 and in 2015 was appointed associate Professor. His lab studies the relationship between perception, action, and motor skill learning using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques in healthy subjects and patients with motor deficits.
