Porat Yakov

PhD student

(jointly with Prof. Naama Atzaba-Poria)



My PhD thesis is a longitudinal study investigating the changes in the firstborn's empathy and prosocial behavior throughout the transition into siblinghood. Additionally, I am examining the relationship between maternal characteristics and child temperament, and the development of empathy and prosocial behavior. My research is conducted in collaboration with Prof. Naama Atzaba-Poria.

I receive support from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
