SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

The nervous system poses a challenge to every scientist because it pushes us to deal with complex systems where emerging properties are more than the sum of the parts. The knowledge derived from the study of the brain permeates disciplines as diverse as biology, philosophy, computation and mathematics. I think it´s worth visiting this inner frontier, as someone called it.
