SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am interested in mechanisms of signal transformation and transmission within the brain at the molecular and cellular levels. Membrane biophysics and electrophysiology as well as molecular biology give us the way to detailed understanding of this self-organizing system and the philosophy of life. I believe in mathematical modelling of biophysical processes to be the best instrument of life cognition in addition to the real experiments.
