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 Thomas Van Vleet

I had the pleasure of getting to know Shlomo while working as a post-doc in Lynn Robertson's lab at Berkeley. I came to know Shlomo as an uncompromising scientist that exuded a genuine passion for his work.  He was truly a 'force of nature', as evidenced not only in the lab, but also on the ski hills of Lake Tahoe (smile). Together, we shared a fascination for hemispatial neglect and I was honored when he asked me to review a related paper. Although my time with Shlomo was limited, I will always remember his caring smile and genuine presence. My deepest condolences to Miri and family.
