Shlomo Bentin died in a traffic accident on July 13th 2012. Shlomo was an amazing man and had a great impact not only on psychological and brain science but also directly on the lives of so many people. He had a unique passion for life and for scientific discovery. He was a strong man with a soft heart and his exuberant presence was always felt and admired.

This blog is a place where people can share their experiences and memories of Shlomo. He was an extremely lively man who cherished his family, friends, work and academic accomplishments and we hope this blog will help to celebrate his life as he always did.

From Alex List

I was also one of the lucky graduate students who benefited from Shlomo's Berkeley visits and collaborations, with hugs and animated conversations while catching up at conferences thereafter--most recently including a very joyous and proud description of the prize he received this year. Beyond admiring his unrelenting scientific passion and thoughtful mentorship, I most appreciated that Shlomo exuded such tangible enjoyment from life, his family, and his students' and friends' successes--such a rare combination of qualities. When I think of him, I have and will continue to imagine him with that distinctive smile and twinkle in his eyes.
