Timeline of Daphna Joel


One of the most important studies on which Joel’s theory is based was done by pharmacologist Margaret McCarthy from the University of Maryland. McCarthy found that characteristics in male and female animal brains can cause changes in their shapes as a result of external circumstances such as stress. Joel concluded from the results of this study and other studies she examined that if under pressure certain areas of the brain can turn from their typical “female form” to the typical “male form” – there is no point in talking about a female brain and a male brain, and that this division is meaningless.

Joel counts gender and feminism among her research interests. In an interview with The Marker, she said that even as a child and during her military service (ages 18–20) she expressed feminist views. Joel claims that in the gendered western world, males (as identified by their genitals) are channeled into being “boys”, and genitally identified females – into “girls”. According to Joel, the common social and cultural perception is one that divides the world of possibilities into two parts. In her opinion, in a world without gender, where there is no social and cultural significance to the shape of a person’s genitals, there will be many more possibilities for both females and males.


Joel’s conclusions have been challenged by others in the field of neuroscience, and she met with obstacles getting her first study on the subject published in 2011: Male or Female? Brains are Intersex.


In 2009, Joel began “Women/Men Conflict Groups” for psychology undergraduates, a program created by Prof. Ariella Friedman, according to a model developed in dialog groups of Jews and Arabs in Neve Shalom. Later, she developed a working model for groups dealing with gender issues, which combines the conflict group model with the awareness group model from the 1970s. Based on this model, she began designing a course in psychology and gender – “Is pink a girl color?”, which examined social conventions such as what is “feminine” and “masculine,” and people’s attitudes, often unconscious, towards various things from the perspective of their gender. The preparation of this course led Joel to her research into the “male brain” and “female brain” in the early 2000s.


Joel began her academic career during her compulsory military service, in the Talpiot program, which she left after a year and a half. After completing her military service, Joel enrolled in the Tel Aviv University program for outstanding students. She completed a bachelor’s degree in medical science, followed by a doctorate in psychobiology (1998), which focused on how connections in the brain are organized. She then joined the faculty of neuroscience, after receiving an Alon fellowship for young Israeli scientists. Her main area of research for 15 years was the cerebral mechanisms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
