Dr. Tal Kenet is an assistant professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and a Principal Investigator in the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Neurology, and is affiliated with the MIT-MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging. She has extensive training and knowledge in systems neuroscience, with particular expertise in sensory processing.

Dr. Kenet's doctoral research centered on the first stages of visual processing in the brain, while her post-doctoral work focused on abnormal development of auditory perception in animals with normal hearing.

Subsequently, she became interested in autism, and was granted a Young Investigator Award from the Cure Autism Now foundation and from the MIND Institute at UC Davis to use MEG to study abnormal sensory processing in autism. She is currently using MEG successfully with both visual and auditory stimulation on children and adults, with and without autism.
