Eva Jablonka (right) is an evolutionary biologist working in the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas, Tel-Aviv, and a member of the Sagol School of Neuroscience. Her main interest is the understanding of evolution, especially evolution that is driven by non-genetic hereditary variations and the evolution of nervous systems and consciousness.

Simona Ginsburg (left) is a neurobiologist who retired from the Open University of Israel, where she headed the MA Program in Biological Thought (in philosophy of biology). Her past research interests have been artificial membranes, neurobiology of synapses and the stochastics of ion channels. More recent work focuses on the evolution of early nervous systems and the evolutionary transitions to consciousness in the animal world.
