SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I would like to gain an indepth knowledge and understanding of all aspects of neurosciences especially neurophysiology and molecular neurobiology. My current scientific interests include mechanisms of cell signalling -synaptic transmission & signal transduction. I want to investigate how the brain "creates" the mind - physiological, psychological and molecular basis of cognition, perception, learning and memory.
