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 Giuseppe Vallar

It is very sad to learn that Schlomo has passed away, and in such an unexpected and absurd way. I remember the many discussions with him about science (spatial neglect, particularly), in Israel and in Italy, but also about science more in general, the society and politics, and his love for Miriam and his family. We not always agreed, but always the interaction was fruitful and warm. I shall miss him.
