My research is at the intersection of neurology, neuroscience, imaging, genetics, and computational intelligence. It is based on the pivotal question: can modulation of brain activity in selected regions and networks lead to specific changes in sensation, perception, cognition and action, and if so, what are they and how can they be used in neuroscience research and clinical treatment of brain disorders? My work is based on the fundamental neuropsychological paradigms of learning, namely, to induce changes in the brain and behavior, combining it with innovative developments in functional brain imaging, electroencephalography, physiological measurement, gene transfer, and computational algorithms.
